I discovered this awesome designer Raquel Allegra and was fascinated by her unique clothing designs.  As you will see in her video, she uses jail-house worn tees that she buys in bulk from a rag house.  She dies, cuts, sews and shreds the tees to create her awesome pricy designs.  She did not show us the shredding process, but I did locate a video on how to shred a tee by, CAMILLE, OF CHILDHOOD FLAMES. She has a video plus a complete pictorial tutorial. Camille is 15 years old and lives in Portland, OR.  This seems to be a big fashion statement this summer, so dig up some worn tees and go crazy.
