Clothes made from ... Coffee Grounds?

Dude!

A company from Taiwan named Singtex Industries discovered a way to turn used coffee grounds into wearable yarn!

It's called S. Café tm fabric, and it's the brainchild of a few research scientists who also double as coffee connoisseurs. Singtex Industries general manager Jason Yen and three fellow scientists basically created a process that recycles coffee grounds into tiny-sized particles. These particles are then woven together to create the S. Café tm fabric, which can be used for both knitted and woven clothing. A single cup of coffee can make two T-shirts.

The best aspect about this fabric is that it's fast –drying, it doesn't smell and it even protects you from UV rays!
