First it was knitting; then came excessive facial grooming, vegan baking and urban beekeeping. You thought hipster hobbies couldn’t get weirder? Brace yourself.


Now think: taxidermy. From DIY stuffing kits to workshops and homemade skull jewelry, this old craft is getting a revival from the hands of artists, designers and newcomers determined to make stuffing the dead trendy, according to Ozy.com.


“Taxidermy is having a massive comeback,” says Jo Shears, fashion designer and animal stuffer. Why the sudden interest in a craft that has not been really popular since the 1800s? “It really fits with the trend for vintage and is really popular with the sleek and more design-led crowd,” she explains.
