Now a spray can make your dress

Creating a clothing without weaving and stitching is possible now, if claim by a fashion designer is to be believed. A Spanish designer Manel Torres has created a new line of clothing which is sprayed directly onto the skin, drying instantly.

The "fabric" is made up of short fibers mixed with a polymer, which is then mixed with a solvent.

"I really wanted to make a futuristic, seamless, quick and comfortable material," said Torres.

"In my quest to produce this kind of fabric, I ended up returning to the principles of the earliest textiles such as felt, which were also produced by taking fibres and finding a way of binding them together without having to weave or stitch them," he says.

The spray is however not very comfortable to wear as it is evidently very cold when sprayed on. It may lead to development of other technologies, such as spray-on bandages and upholstery.
