Throughout the world, fashion designers with eco-slope break head to invent a more to “worn” and don’t harm nature. At times their fantasies begin to whisk away the plot of some sci-fi epic. And if you think wear a jacket from the bacteria can only heroes of the next blockbuster about the distant future, or at least distant galaxies, this material will surprise you. It turns out that bio-studio already exist. Proved labor designer Suzanne Lee.
The designer from London, found a good way to create ecological clothes, not really spent on natural fabrics – just grow it. Yes, and even at home. Simple: take a bit of green tea, lots of sugar, yeast and time – voila, a raw material for future models of self grows in the “laboratory”. And while you can with a clear conscience and a sense of their own eco-consciousness to watch TV or enjoy a cup of tea (but not the one in which “sour” bacteria! ).
Bacteria cellulose will do everything for you. Multiply, they form something like a thick semi-transparent film, which last week reached an inch in thickness. It sounds, of course, not too appetizing, but what to do, if it is for the sake of nature and save money.
When the “canvas” reaches the desired size, cut it neatly in pattern and dried on a special three-dimensional forms in wood. When the “fabric” is removed from the dummy, it is already almost finished product.
So uncomplicated (but scientific) way Suzanne Lee has created a line of bags, jackets, some recent styles and even a collection of “elegant” things Scar Bodice, tight, like a second skin. Three-dimensional patterns for the latter are made ??with dry beans, which gave his models a convex shape.
Despite some emotion tinged with “fu”, which can cause environmental clothing of the audience, so simple, but effective technology deserves attention. The only thing that needs more work it is to “train” bacteria don’t be afraid of water. And then the first rain will leave you without a jacket or a confusion without a corset.
