Growing Leather…from Bacteria?

I was floored by this video of Suzzanne Lee’s efforts into creating textiles utilizing bacterial cellulose (formed by fermentation in kombucha tea).  Yup, “fabric” – well, more like leather – from BACTERIA.

What an amazing step forward in technology – I’m super-interested to see where this innovation will go once more R&D labs get ahold of it.

So this also begs the question: If they worked out the kinks in the fabric weight and texture…Would you wear clothing made by bacteria?
