If you’re the type of person who regrets the slaughter of a hurd of small fluffy animals when you slap down your credit card for this season’s must-have coat-to-die-for then worry not! A solution to grow leather coats in a lab may be around the corner!

The Tissue Culture & Art Project in Australia are attempting to grow a semi-living jacket in an effort to create “victimless leather.” Hoping to highlight the possibility of wearing leather without killing an animal, the duo is presently focused on growing living tissue into a leather-like material and having it mature in the form of a miniature, stitchless, coat-like shape.
