Kerasynth is a synthetically grown biological material that could replace all keratin-based animal fibers. The goal of Kerasynth is to eliminate the direct use of animals in the textile industry, while still utilizing keratin based animal fibers. This is made possible through the implementation of tissue engineering to grow Hair Follicle Germ (HFG) cells on microfluidic devices designed to provide the cells with nutrients and remove waste, maintaining the integrity of the fiber without the animal’s direct involvement. Made through collaboration with Erin Kirchner, Sydney Seih-Takata, Grace Kwon and Diana Eusebio.Baltimore, MD USA. May 2018. Presented at the MoMA July 2018, for the 2018 Biodesign Summit.
