If the above video is any indication to what the future holds for fabrics, then yes – quite possibly.
Spanish fashionisto Manel Torres teamed up with scientists at Imperial College London to invent a silly-string-like spray that is actually short fibers (wool, linen or acrylic) mixed with polymers. When dissolved in solvent, the scientists are able to spray the fibers from an aerosol can or high-pressure air gun. The fibers then bond, dry and turn into fabric in the shape in which they were sprayed. Best of all, the fabrics created can be washed and reused or even dissolved again to start a new project from scratch.
Torres is currently experimenting with the spray-on fibers to create clothes, medical bandages and upholstery.
