Bacterial fabric: introductory studies on the application of biomimetics in the bacterial fermentation process

Journal of Textile Engineering & Fashion Technology
Luísa Córdova Wandscheer, Dulce Maria Holanda Maciel, Daniela Novelli


Thinking about innovations that reduce environmental impact and offer quality consumer goods is a way of proposing a future scenario governed by eco-efficiency values. Through an exploratory bibliographic and documentary research, which qualitatively analyses Kombucha authors and fermenters, this article seeks to identify the relationship between biomimetics and bacterial fabric production as an eco-efficient product in the fashion market chain. The general objective of this case study is to explain the fermentation process to encourage the search for raw materials inserted in the sustainability proposal.
