In the last few years the request for biological and ecological fabrics for wardrobe and accessories it has grown. New materials as biological cotton, synthetics fibres are recycled from garbage or plastic, they are gradually taking off.
A significant innovation in this field its been supported by the researcher SUZANNE LEE, which she introduced a different prospective on the process of materials. In her book”FASHIONING THE FUTURE: TOMORROW’S WARDROBE” SUZANNE LEE explored the future fashion, with particular attention to the new fashion material. New trends will soon have to adapt for greater sustainability of the fashion industry.
For SUZANNE LEE the materials can be entirely lab products: the result will be “vegetable leather” soft and resistant adaptable for wardrobes and fabrics.
For the creation of the new material called “vegetable hide”, SUZANNE LEE took a culture of yeast and bacteria to get a similar fabric to the cellulose, the appearance of which it comes very close to that which could be defined as “vegetable leather”.
What are the features of the production of this fabric?
The project, substained by SUZANNE LEE and by BIO COUTURE company, it was the protagonist of the London design week 2011, promoting an agreement between the fashion world and environmental sustainability.
