TEDxDelft 2013 | Do watch this at home! Suzanne Lee: Grow your own clothes
When you think of materials for clothing, you probably think of cotton or polyester or leather. Suzanne Lee (TED, 2011) came in to contact with a biologist and together they set up a process where it is possible to grow your own materials: Microbial – cellulose. Using this ‘vegetable leather’ she is able to design regular clothing and perhaps in the future even other constructions like a chair or a house. What will you grow with this process?
