Would You Ever Wear Clothing Made From Cow Manure?

2 years ago8.4K views

One laboratory near the Dutch city of Eindhoven is doing the dirty work - literally. Bio-artist Jalila Essaidi has pioneered a new method to transform cow dung into useful material.

Jalila shot to fame in 2013 after she spearheaded a genetic experiment which combined human skin with spider silk, which the media called 'bulletproof skin.' Her new project focuses on sustainability.

Cow manure is actually one of the leading drivers of the greenhouse gas methane escaping into the atmosphere, so Jalila's project has the potential to ease global warming.

Jalilia's company called the material made from cow dung 'Mestic,' and its got many interesting properties. Textiles made from Mestic have been well received by the fashion industry and some big-name brands already looking into ways of producing fashion items made of eco-friendly cow poop. Would you ever wear clothing made out of cow manure?
