A group of students from the Isle of Man have been growing their own clothes using a recipe of green tea, sugar and bacteria.
Millie Barrow, Emma Howard, Annabell Jose and Grace Harrop have been spending months growing the items from scratch.
Millie Barrow, 16, said: "The clothes are made from a cellulose mat (kombucha) which is grown from the solution and when you're bored the clothes are completely de-compostable."
The Queen Elizabeth II pupils won their heat of the National Science and Engineering Competition after presenting their innovative material and a category in the Observer Ethical Awards.
