Abstract: Bacterial cellulose is a sustainable biomaterial produced by Acetobacter xylinum, which has a self-synthesizing property to grow in any shape. The purpose of the study was to diagnose the current status of bacterial cellulose in textile development and produce innovative cultivation techniques in order to cater to different usages and forms of bacterial cellulose textiles for a variety of garment styles. The new tailor-shaped cultivation techniques not only improve the environmental values of this material but also further promote its production method as a sustainable practice. This organic material is able to be cultivated in any desirable garment panel shape, with no cutting and less textile waste. Two different types of tailor-shaped cultivation techniques called contacting surface-blocking cultivation and panel-shaped cultivation were developed. With the self-synthesizing property, natural biodegradable bacterial cellulose can shed light on the development of new sustainable textile materials and manufacturing practices in the future.
