Abstract :

Biotechnology can be broadly defined as "using organisms or their products for commercial purposes." Fashion is an expression it will always unique to everyone. Contribution of biotechnology in fashion is gradually becoming new rage. This present review represents biotechnology in fashion designing and majorly highlighting microbial cellulose (biopolymer, most abundant and renewable natural resource on earth) for cloth making. The process utilizes Acetobacter xylinum, a non-hazardous and non-pathogenic bacterium, to produce cellulosic nano-fibers -chemically similar to cotton-. These nano-fibers form a dense structure, as we call it, the Microbial Non-Woven (MNW).  Experts predict that fashion garments and clothing and home furnishings made from new class of biodegradable, environment friendly products could become a $15 billion business in few years, emulating the success of organic food and beauty products.
