Fashion Designer Makes Clothes With Fermented Tea (VIDEO)

It's time to put down that cup of tea and consider wearing it. Okay, you don't have to do that right this minute. But, Sacramento-based cheese maker and fashion designer Sacha Laurin is literally making tea clothing.

In the above Fox News interview, Laurin's collection is described as kombucha couture -- kombucha meaning "fermented tea." She creates dresses, accessories and more from escobi in a process that involves green tea and cultures found in cheese, a living bacteria which is then manipulated into a leather-like material. The designer even called it a sort of "vegan leather," and her clothing is sustainable and eco-friendly.

Watch the video above for more on Sacha Laurin's intea-resting collection.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this article misspelled the designer's name as "Sasha Lauren."
