Kombucha TsugiBag collection
Kombucha Tsugi-bag collection
To introduce Circular Economy models through the implementation of biomaterials that can be cultured and transformed on an industrial scale, developing a hybrid material collection promoting repairand reuse.
To create a five-piece kombucha tsugi-bag collection that showcases the integration of kombucha-based materials and second-hand textiles. The Project will develop a representative bag collection as a high-end proof-of-concept demonstration of the materials’ compatibility and product supply chain, implementing a scalable kombucha fabrication process with replicable standards validating the sustainable sourcing of second-hand textiles in Paris. The Project fosters local industry, circular economy and sustainable consumption developing local communities in urban farming, with the long-term aim of creating a hybrid shop using open source techniques.
