The Future of T-Shirts

Imagine that in the future cotton is no longer then default material for T-Shirts. Instead of plopping on a tee, you spray yourself with Fabrican, an instant and sprayable non-woven fabric. Granted, it takes about 15 minutes to spray on a Fabrican made T-Shirt, but hey, it’s the future and we all have more time in the future.

“Developed through a collaboration between Imperial College London and the Royal College of Art, Fabrican technology has captured the imagination of designers, industry and the public around the world. The technology has been developed for use in household, industrial, personal and healthcare, decorative and fashion applications using aerosol cans or spray-guns, and will soon be found in products available everywhere.”

The spray is made from short fibers that are coupled with a solvent that allow for the binding of polymers to take place which allows for the formation of the Fabrican fabric.
