A dress fashioned with food waste

As a subscriber of National Geographic I’m often impressed with eco-minded designers.  This information is from an article written by Catherine Zuckerman, and the photo is courtesy of Rebecca Hale. To summarize, there is work being done in “farm to fashion”.  Sacha Laurin’s medium is a bacterial “colony” left after brewing tart fermented tea known as kombucha.  One dried, the material becomes a faux leather.  This California designer sews it into haute couture dresses. Isn’t this pretty– the Kombucha dress.
