Biological materials like silk and leather have unique properties that just cannot be found with petrochemical polymer imitations. Today, these biomaterials can be made from cell cultures instead of harvested from animals.

A panel discussion with:

Andras Forgacs, Modern Meadow,
Kenji Higashi, Spiber, Inc., and
Joshua Katcher, The Discerning Brute.
