Re:store the charity shop in Barnstpale is displaying all their clothes on mannequins made entirely of cardboard The shop raises funds on behalf of North Devon Against Domestic Abuse and is based on Boutport Street. They were supplied with the unusual mannequins by Atlas Packaging after manager Alessia Sheldon wanted an eye-catching way to display clothes. She also wanted an eco-friendly and cost efficient solution so contacted Atlas with the idea and the company got to work creating both male and female mannequins.

The mannequins are suspended from the store's ceilings with ribbons. Atlas managing director Jason Sharman said: "Our design team at Atlas are capable of making just about anything you can imagine out of corrugated board. "Whether it's a replica formula one car, a musical instrument or even a bed, they can make it."
