This study investigated the use of soil to create a substitute textile material in Thailand. It aims to maximise the value of natural resources in response to climate change, based on the concept of living in harmony with nature. A bio-fibre was synthesised from soil bacteria through a process that holistically considered the full production cycle, ensuring that it generated no waste. The final material contained melanin pigments similar to human skin tones, with hues comparable to those of people from Thailand.
