With all the strides technology has made, there is no question that the production of clothes has become more and more convenient from generation to generation. Digging into the 1790's, Thomas Saint invented the first sewing machine that was primarily for horsing paraphernalia only (saddles and bridles) and it took almost a hundred years to come up with an upgrade of Saint's invention that has the elements to manufacture clothes such as vertically-mounted needle.

However, since 2003, Manel Torres made a huge difference in the field of clothing production and manufacturing with Fabrican. He introduced us to this revolutionary technology which began with a concept of liquid fabric. Like a seed, it eventually bloomed into a fruitful tree when he obtained PhD to bring his little curiosity into existence.

What is Spray-on Fabric? As the name suggests, it is an instant and non-woven liquid material that becomes a fabric when it dries. It creates a garment of which thickness depends on the number of layers you spray. While the final product gets so much hype because of its former state of matter, it still gets hold of ordinariness because just like any average clothing, it can be washed for a numerous times and be worn again and again and again.

In what way does Fabrican work better, when compared to normal fabric? How many times have you gone to your favorite store, spotted such a perfect dress howbeit ill-fitting? Well, through this technology, you will be able to create pieces of clothing that are actually according to your body. In addition, it can also repair and redesign old and damaged garments. 

And the applications are endless. It can make perfect protective - whether temporary or permanent - coverings for your couch, bed sheets, pillow cases or curtains. and because it can create a very thick layer of cloth, it can also be a good dressing, bandage and cast to protect open wounds or injured body parts. 

Indeed, there's no truthfulness in what they say that the best inventors have long gone. Because despite the abundance of discoveries both in the past and at present, some still manage to get out of their box and creatively design their invention.

    The idea is great but the end result is not that good. Maybe it's because he's an inventor and not a fashion designer
