Unique, natural Kombucha designs. Each piece is a SCOBY culture (Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast), created through brewing detoxifying pro-biotic sparkling kombucha tea.
The cultures are conditioned with essential oils, dyed with beets, indigo, turmeric, and herbs and other food grade tints, and then air and sun dried. They become a fraction of their original thickness, and become a completely unique sustainable vegetarian leather unlike any other fabric. Fashioning live culture- symbiosis at its best.
2nd Place: Michael Kouri, "The City in the Sea"
Photograher Quroscuro Model Angelica Ishma
3rd Place Rachel Lewis, "A Valentine"
