Kombucha Couture Jewelry

For the Trendy Turophile:

Cheesemaker Sacha Laurin has turned her love for fermentation into living, breathing fashion pieces. Her earrings, necklaces, and hair accessories are made by fermenting tea with yeast and bacteria; once a growing colony reaches the desired size, it’s dried into a textile that can imitate canvas, leather, or silk, depending on the process used. The result is a surprisingly durable, one-of-a-kind piece of Kombucha Couture Jewelry, sure to be a conversation starter.

$30–$40 from Kombucha Couture

Alicia Hahn

Alicia Hahn excels at eating and enjoys writing, crosswords, and cooking (preferably with cheese). Originally from San Francisco, she moved to Boston for school and fell in love with the city (despite an annual campaign against winter). Her favorite place to be is the farmers’ market, where she finds weird and exciting ingredients to make or break her next meal.
