Caption

Bikini made from nettle fibres. Researcher Alex Dear from De Montfort University, UK, models a bikini she designed using fabric woven entirely from stinging nettle (Urtica dioica) fibres. Stinging nettles have traditionally been used as a herbal medicine and tonic, but it is now cultivated to produce fibres for textile manufacturing. The high fibre yields and easy growing conditions make nettles an attractive alternative crop.
