Sociale aspect

Duurzaamheid is belangrijk voor de ontwikkeling van textiel en ook voor een duurzame toekomst. Een kwart van alle pesticiden in de landbouw wordt gebruikt in de katoenteelt. Zij hebben behoefte aan een enorme hoeveelheid water voor de productie van kleding. Dit kan veranderen met de komst van nieuwe stoffen in de toekomst gevormd uit micro-organismen.

BioCouture is een product dat het verschil in de nabije en verre toekomst kunnen maken. Bekende stoffen zoals katoen kan worden vervangen door een textiel dat wordt gemaakt van micro-organismen zoals bacteriën, schimmels en algen cellulose, chitine en eiwit vezels zoals zijde.

zou dit kunnen consumenten in de nabije toekomst kan worden omringd door bacteriële cellulose – in onze kleren, onze boeken en tijdschriften, onze auto’s, onze gebouwen. Hieronder heb ik het sociale aspect weergegeven in een visuele cirkel van micro-organismen in petrischaaltjes: keuzevak-microorganisme

Ilfa & Carly – 10 sustainable project examples


This project is a collaboration between G-star & Bionic Yarn . We think this is a regenwashing project because they make yarn from waist plastics in the sea. It is not circulair because they spin cotton around the yarn. So you can’t recylce it again.




They make sustainable designs. They have developed an instalation that can shred plastic and turn it in a 3d print filament to make sustainable products of it.




Graduated student from WDKA that uses the waist of shrimpshells to develop keramics.




She uses ash from waist to create plates in her project.





Architects are creating the most sustainable building of the world in Rotterdam as a symbol of sustainble development.




Students of WDKA have made leather out of fruit.









They are using waist of the food from restaurants to make biogas for electricity.

SUSTAINABLE PROJECTS Michelle, Sophia & Alexandra

Introducing Piñatex™,,,

10 sustainable projects – by Madelief & Boaz

-Floating fish cage, Aquapod, drifting freely of the coast of Hawaii. youtube, aqua pod

-Vertical farm, Nest We Grow in Hokkaido. To produce food on less square meters of available space.

-Wind powered mine-sweeper, Mine Kafon, sweeping mines at the cost of no more than $50,-?!

The new raw plastic workshop in syros investigates sustainable solutions to plastic pollution, proposing ideas to promote plastic into a circulair economy.

BU water uses bamboo filter to provide sustainable substitute to throwaway bottles, eliminating the need to purchase bottled mineral water over- and over again.

-PNAT builds jellyfish barge for sustainable crop cultivation, independent from water, oil and other resources.

woody skateboards repurpose urban wood for sustainable shredding. Crafted from trees felled for city renewal.

Michael verhaeren’s sustainable + compact bamboo bicycle. A simple yet sturdy bamboo framed bicycle to rival other bamboo bikes which require difficult manufacturing procedures.

-Sleek Sustainable Housing By Stephane Malka Architecture, ‘Ame-lot’, to accommodate students.

-A Furniture Made From Seaweed. Sea Me, by Dutch designer Nienke Hoogvliet is a series of modern pieces of furniture dyed with seaweed.

The 10 examples by Eva Verrij

Re-sea me rug 

Nienke Hoogvliet (

RE-SEA ME is the continuation of SEA ME. To show the duality between plastic waste in the oceans and the sustainable materials the oceans have to offer, Nienke continued her search for materials out of the sea. She discovered that fish skins are a waste product of the fishing industry, while you can also make them into beautiful leather.

Ananas Anam

Made from pineapple leaf fibres, Piñatex™ is a branded natural and sustainable material which can be used as an alternative to existing textiles and leathers.
Developed and manufactured by Ananas Anam, our aim is to provide a unique and innovative textile that promotes social, cultural and ecological development.
Our philosophy is to establish a strong circular economy by developing a commercially successful business that supports local farming communities.

Kurt’s Amsterdam

Biologische katoen en hennep
De kleding van KURT’S Amsterdam kan met recht duurzaam genoemd worden. De garens die voor de t-shirts worden gebruikt zijn een blend van biologisch katoen met hennep. Hennep is een duurzame grondstof omdat er veel minder water en bestrijdingsmiddelen worden gebruikt bij de verbouw van dit gewas in vergelijking met katoen.

Suzanne Lee, Fashion Innovator Who Grows Clothing in the Laboratory

Imagine you could grow your own clothes, using fermented tea, bacteria, yeast, and other microorganisms that can spin the ingredients into eco-friendly fibers. This is exactly what fashion designer Suzanne Lee pioneered. She investigated the possibility of creating clothing through the use of microbial cellulose. For this research project Lee coined the term Biocouture, which transitioned to a biocreative consultancy some years ago.



Bamboo clothing


Les Sauvages by Isaac Monté

Day by day we pass by dead animals in the streets. Most of them got killed in traffic. Instantly they lose their value of a beautiful living creature and turn into a piece of trash. Years have made us immune to this problem. It’s a fact we already recognize as typical for our busy traffic and lives. The goal of this collection of masks, made out of roadkill fur, is to create an experience that is at once poetic, uncanny, meditative and stunning. I gather, collate, re-use, layer, peel, burn, reveal, duplicate, play and photograph. It’s not my intention to shock, but to reveal the idea that objects that might have lost their value can still be beautiful. By taking an everyday object that is intrinsically discomforting and by reframing and reinterpreting it, the viewer is being enticed to reexamine his preconceptions and prejudices.

The masks are fetish inspired and made out of the fur of rabbits, hares and cats (roadkill)

Filter Factory

by Isaac Monte

Filter Factory is a stament on the littering behaviour of smokers. An average smoker throws every year 2.5 kilo of cigarette ends on the street. Birds eat these cigarette ends because they consider them to be food. As a result they die.
On the other hand, birds are smart and use the filters in their nests. Because the filters are made out of a synthetic fiber, they keep the eggs warm. Besides, the nicotine keeps leeches out of the nest, so the little chicks don’t die.
It is my aim to make smokers aware of their littering behaviour and reward them for their good behaviour instead of punishing them for bad behaviour. When throwing your cigarette end in the machine, it is being shredded and the counter runs. Every three hundredth cigarette, a door pops open and the lucky smoker can take a birdhouse home with him.
The birdhouses are being made in some sort of big waffle iron. The shredded cigarette filters are being melted in the waffle iron and thus being shaped into a birdhouse.
