Lab-Made Fashion Trend


Although fashion is has been using natural materials such as organic cotton, hemp, and bamboo, for ages, recent material innovation has taken this trend to the next level. One such innovative material is Cellulose, a coconut-based fabric that requires much lesser water and land to be produced.

Another interesting material is the leather-like structure made from kombucha tea. The realm of innovative materials created at the intersection of biology with technology is very new but very promising at the same time. Finally, with the help of biology, we can create the perfect ‘leather’, right in the lab.

Fully biodegradable (because it is already tanned to the colour desired by the buyer), these materials are reducing waste and are entirely eco-friendly.
