FABRICAN....Where'd Ya Go?




FABRICAN....Where'd Ya Go?


Amazing spray-on T-shirt demonstration . Spanish Manel Torres invented the spray-on fabric . The technology has been developed for use in household, industrial, personal and healthcare, decorative and fashion applications using aerosol cans or spray-guns, and will soon be found in products available everywhere.


Every once in a while, something reminds me of this Manel Torres invention. I keep on thinking, I will order this! Test it out. And when thinking of where technology may be heading, the aerosol blended with perhaps something else fiber-esque, may very well be how wearables or other fiber related products are produced in the future. Forbes covered in 2010 with an article that mainly focused on the patent path that this product was on and also looking for investors. In 2013 there was a resurgence of discussion on Fabrican including this TEDX with Manel Torres that is interesting to watch.

Knotwe is on the search for Fabrican....time to stop thinking about it and see what this stuff can really do....And of course we will share it with Knotwe readers:) 

Fabrican is an instant fabric dispensed from an aerosol or spray gun. It forms a non woven material as soon as it comes into contact with a solid surface including human skin. Manel Torres is developing spray-on Fabric as a multi-functional product which is simple and easy to use.
