Java Jersey

Bringing new meaning to the phrase 'wearing your food,' Tawainese fabric manufacturer Singtex has developed a new cloth that utilizes waste coffee grounds as its basic fibers. Quite fascinating! Identifying a rich waste source that is often headed straight to the land fill, the firm spent three years working on a way to use coffee grounds clothing manufacturing. The result was S.Cafe, an eco-friendly fabric (it's renewed and it doesn't require detergent to wash) that drys quickly, controls odors and provides UV protection. Heck, this sounds like the makings of the world's greatest travel gear! We couldn't find a distributor outside of Taiwan at present, but we'll be keeping our eye out for one.
