Bacteria Patterns are customizable fabrics. By growing the bacteria of our everyday life in petridishes and transfer printing it onto textile, you can capture your unique world on a fabric.
These fabrics are a result of a journey into the world of biotechnology. I started the journey with a wish to grow textiles for the world of 2050. I now have made my own tools for a lab, explored growing textiles and made a booklet on 'Bacteria Printing for Dummies'.
Biotechnology is predicted to be the technology of the 21st century. I envision it coming together with DIY-movements and local economies to democratize the technology and empower society.
So what will biotechnology mean for wearables and textiles of the future?
