Spray on T-Shirt (Video Included)

A shirt that fits so snugly it looks as if it has been sprayed on to the body. Actually, it has.
Thanks to a liquid mixture made of cotton fibres, we could soon be spraying ourselves into everything from T-shirts, dresses and trousers to swimwear and hats.


Fabrican – literally fabric in an aerosol can – is the brainchild of Spanish designer Dr Manel Torres who has spent ten years working on his invention.
In a video demonstrating how it works, he sprays a blue and white T-shirt on to a model in just under 15 minutes.
Drying as soon as it hits his skin, the garment can be taken off, washed and re-worn.


When you get bored with your creation it can be dissolved and the material used again to make something new or repair old designs.
Dr Torres said the idea was to be able to create clothes instantly and cheaply, all of which would be a perfect fit.

Fabrican is still a couple of years from hitting the shelves.

And although some spray-on designs will be on show at London Fashion Week, the instant fabric could end up being used for everything from bandages to furniture upholstery.

    I’d love to have a play around with this. There would be endless things you could actually do spraying with this, and of course the fun you would have as well.

    Thanks for sharing your inspirational story! It’s amazing how big ventures start out with humble beginnings, right?

    It’s ok for those with a good physique, but less ok for those of us with a middle age spread.

      Hi malc50,
      So true, but they are working on it. From the article:-
      “Dr Torres is working on ways to create more forgiving shapes as not everyone likes their clothes clinging to every curve.”
      Although I can’t see how they are going to achieve this, it will be interesting to find out how it all works out when it finally hits the shelves.
      But I think the idea on instant bandages was very good, if it could be used for Medical purposes as well, that would be a plus.

    Is that what we all want/can do? No wonder he used a model.

    Apart from even more tennage girls getting anorixia and the rest of us slobs hating models even more, it’s a pretty cool idea, especially considering the medical aps.

      Hi bingbing,
      Yes it is pretty cool, the medical side could be very handy, especially I feel for Mums and Dads, easier to carry a can of spray on bandages. Also the furniture side of it, for upholstery it could be an easy fix maybe.

      “Must.resist.thoughts.of.porn.” Well there is another video of a spray on dress, using a real person, I didn’t put it in because it was too much like porn.

    It’s probably fortunate that I couldn’t find the photo of the girl who looks like she’s wearing shorts and a Heineken T-shirt, when, in fact, she’s wearing just … paint!

    But, it probably sold a little more Heineken!

    • magsx2 says:

      Hi travelrat,
      Oh yes it would of sold very well. I have seen photo’s of girls wearing only paint, and I must say some look really nice, I think it depends a lot on the painter maybe.
