Here's a new kind of lab coat; the jacket is actually grown in vitro. The science is no longer just for breeding animals and people; it's now been applied to animal products including leather jackets. This makes it possible to wear goods such as animal skins without ever having to harm a creature.
Victimless Leather is a tissue culture and art project being shown at the Design and Elastic Mind exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The exhibit shows how a small-scale version of a leather jacket is grown in a lab. It consists of a living layer of connective and bone cells, nutrient media, a peristaltic pump, glassware and finally, a biodegradable polymer matrix that takes on the form of the jacket.
It was created by Oron Catts and Ionat Zur.
Wild... just wild! A leather even a vegan could wear!
