AfriPrinter is making 3D printed cotton fabric from the cotton paper it uses to make its printer.
The printer, which was invented by a team from the University of Chicago, is making fabric that is flexible, light, and strong enough to be used as a bedsheet, a pillow, or a blanket.
It is a product that was recently used to create a pillow for a child with cerebral palsy.
It’s also the first printer to make fabric from fabric grown in the lab.
The company says the printer can print fabric that’s 100 percent organic.
