I have recently been very interested in the development of sustainable fabrics and came across Susan Lee, who is a NASA/Nike Material Innovator.
She founded Biocouture in 2014, ‘the world’s first biocreative design consultancy’ (Biocouture, 2014), working with companies to explore sustainable material for future consumer products.
On the Biocouture website the subsection Biofabricate can be found, which is the portal to information on research into the possibilities of Mammalian cells, bacteria & yeast, fungi and algae as potential product material.
