Make Vegan Leather in Your Kitchen with Kombucha by Christine Knobel
Have you ever thought to yourself: "If only I could grow a material to make cool clothes and that had low impact on the environment?"
Then look no further! It's easy to make your own vegan leather from kombucha in your kitchen (or where ever you have a little extra space). Dry it, shape it, and sew it to create your own unique designs. Take a deep dive into kombucha's huge potential as a textile and how to optimize it for comfortable wear. Plus, learn about disposal options once you're ready for a new look.
