Luis Quijano, a student at the Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, used white sugar, green tea, kombucha tea, distilled water, coconut oil, food colour and vinegar to cultivate durable bacterial cellulose that can be used in home-grown clothes, but needs to be refined for commercial use. Bacterial cellulose is more eco-friendly to produce, he said.

Quijano wants to modify the manufacturing process by researching and utilising more efficient growing processes so that bacterial cellulose may be grown faster. He also intends to explore methods of waterproofing bacterial cellulose, he told Fibre2Fashion in an interview. (DS)
