Clothing Grown from Bacteria

BioCouture is an environmental sustainability project by designer Suzanne Lee to grow fabric for clothing using bacterial cellulose. The resulting sheets can be molded while wet, or cut and sewn when dry. Examples of her work are currently on display at London's Science Museum.
