I spray to hold my hair, I spray to give myself a glowing tan, but now I can spray on clothing? London’s particle engineer, Paul Luckham, and fashion designer, Manel Torres, have combined forces to reinvent clothing as we know it.
The next time your friend compliments you on your garment, you can say “Thanks! I sprayed it!”
The technology is here. Inside the aerosol can are cotton fibers, polymers and a solvent to form a liquid that becomes fabric once sprayed. You can spray directly onto your skin, and spray as much as you want to create the desired thickness.
Notably, just as you normally wash and care for your clothing, you can wash and wear the spray-on clothing again and again. But unlike normal clothing — which was so 2009 — it can be transformed into a new item once it is dissolved with the solvent.
Sounds far-fetched? Watch this video and see for yourself:
What do you think? Would you try your own creation that’s made in a matter of minutes?
