Garments Made from Vinegar and Kombucha Mothers!

An Australian scientist, Gary Cass, and designer, Donna Franklin, recently created a garment from mother-of-vinegar grown on red wine (see links below), reminding me of a story from a couple of years ago of a English designer Suzanne Lee, who made a dress from mother of kombucha.
