Think Big Kombucha leather

SCOBY leather is a flexible biomaterial that’s made from a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY). A SCOBY grows thicker with each brew as the culture feeds on the dissolved sugar, polyphenols and other nutrients in the freshly brewed and sweetened tea.Once the SCOBY achieves the desired size its harvested and treated just like traditional textile leather, this is followed by the drying process before being molded into shape. SCOBYs can be grown much more efficiently than leather, because it doesn’t rely on any animal products during production. Here you will find a manual to grow your own oversized Kombucha scoby.

Where to grow your bigsize Scoby

Best ist if you find an abandoned building or you have lots of space in your rooftop, somewhere where you have access, you have windows to occassionally ventilate the room. How I was inside a residency at Cité International des Arts, I saw there were some studios unoccupied and just took my courage to ask to use them. It turned out that they have even more space and gave me an entire rooftop floor to install my small biolab.
