VitroLabs aims to design animal farming out of leather production. They have engineered a cell-cultivated product that begins with a cow biopsy to harvest just a few cells.

That hide can then move straight to the tanning process, significantly reducing the environmental impact. The process is also much more favorable for animal welfare.
