According to Bobby Wisdom, some 80 percent of the polyester-silk used to make neckties is produced in China. He should know. His company, Dreamweavers, is taking those fabric scraps—which, because they're a blend of fibers, can't be respun—and upcycling them to make colorful covers for Pilates balls. The aptly named Ball comes in 70- and 100-inch-diameter sizes, incorporating 5,000 to 8,000 scraps. No two are alike. As if that weren't enough, sitting on Ball will give you abs of steel, which is more than a silk tie can do.
