Clothing Made in a Bathtub, From Bacteria!

Suzanne Lee, the genius behind BioCouture, grows bacteria in her bathtub that eventually becomes sewable bacterial cellulose!
According to Ecouterre she uses: "a couple of bathtubs, some yeast, a pinch of bacteria, and several cups of sweetened green tea." (Green tea? Who knew I was drinking away the next big thing?)

I got one word... EWWWWWW!
Actually, in the grand sceme of things, this is pretty neat.. :)
Tho, I don't think I'll be wearing it anytime soon...via / link


  1. Man! I really want to be in, but the pre-dyed color is just too close to looking like skin. Creeps me out.

    I wanna touch it!

  2. Ha! I didn't think about that...

    But I was thinking about the smell! How can bacteria NOT stink??

  3. So much to catch up on!! Is it too late to say that the babysitting ghost set up had me laughing out loud? I'll pass on the bacteria clothes. I'll save my yeast for food. Hmmm, edible clothes..I may be on to something.

  4. Gah! Friends don't let friends eat bacteria! You don't know where that shirt's been!

    (p.s. Welcome back!)

  5. yeah im a bit skeeved on that. I keep singing that blind melon song about buffalo bill.

  6. First thing that came to mind when I saw this was "it puts the lotion on its skin"
