It’s a simple device that slices PET soda bottles into uniform width ribbons that are quite strong and heat-shrinkable.

This site from Brazil might be the first to come up with the idea/model and has plain text with a few pictures (though no specifics for making one) for SteveU, MikeL, and others: U T S U M I - Artesanato com PET
