Bio hat (2019-2020)

Material research: Biodegradable HAT made from wheat straw and scoby

The biodegradable material utilized in this project represents a significant advancement in the exploration of organic materials, particularly symbiotic cultures of bacteria and yeast. By presenting it as a viable and sustainable alternative to the prevailing “fast fashion” practices in our hyperconsumeristic society, we aim to push the boundaries of research in the fashion industry. This innovative material holds immense potential as the primary component for clothing production, such as the creation of hats, for instance.
