Natsai Audrey Chieza

Here's a new approach to pattern-making from Zimbabwe-born London designer Natsai Audrey Chieza one that uses specially cultured herb soil bacteria. Chieza has discovered how some bacteria, when extracted from herbs like sage, bloom into rich, unique colours when they are cultured. 

Applying these to fabrics, a pattern is created that clings to the individual microbes. Chieza is now exploring whether or not it's possible to use bacteria for creating programmable patterns for fashion brands.
