Loom bands: eBay bids for dress made from rubber bands reaches £169,000

The craze for loom bands has hit an all-time high, after bids for an eBay dress made entirely of the colourful rubber accessories hit £169,300.

The dress, which is made to fit girls size four to six and has been weaved from 20,000 of the rubber loops, bracelets and charms, was listed by a Wrexham woman who said she was ‘shocked’ at the level of interest.

Helen Wright told WalesOnline that she enlisted the help of a friend to weave the dress after her 12-year-old daughter Sian gave her the idea.

‘My friend Katherine physically made it because she’s out of work and gets bored,’ she said.

‘I said “why don’t we make a dress from loom bands” and Katherine said she’d be happy do do it because she’s too ill to work.

‘It was made as a novelty and we never intended it to be worn.’

Loom bands first became popular in 2011 after Michigan inventor Cheong Choon Ng created the Rainbow Loom, a tool that allows children to weave rubber bands into jewellery.

The popularity of the bands was largely unexpected in an era when children are used to playing with tablets and video games.
