Forest Functional Attire

You would suppose that most clothes associated with trees are done so on the basis of either camping gear or those woven from fabrics that have been recycled four times over. But what if the clothing we wore actually took after the trees in the sense that the very fabrics would purify the air? ...But of course without the dirt, mossy branches, and crunchy leaves.

No need to worry about going out looking like
you've slept in a fern patch for the past four years...

I'm intrigued to say that the innovative minds at the London College of Fashion and the University of Sheffield are striving to bring fashion and science together with this idea in mind. The collaboration is known as Catalytic Clothing. Go to for the full details and a stunning video on the ideology and the dress they are developing.
