Living microbes will ferment a garment!

Imagine a fabric that grows! A garment that forms itself without a single stitch!

Instead of lifeless weaving machines producing the textile, living microbes will ferment a garment. It smells like red wine and feels like sludge when wet, but the cotton-like cellulose dress fits snugly as a second skin.

The material is very delicate, comprising micro-fibrils of cellulose. The coloration of the fabric will depend on the wine used, red wine - red fabric, white wine or beer - a translucent material.

A fermented garment will not only rupture the meaning of traditional interactions with body and clothing; but will also examine the practicalities and cultural implications of commercialization.

This project redefines the production of woven materials. By combining arts and science knowledge and with a little inventiveness, the ultimate goal will be to produce a bacterial fermented seamless garment that forms without a single stitch.
