Airi Isoda created a special coat made from recyclable high-density fiber, Tyvek and silk  that allows wheatgrass to grow in it.  “I thought, why not water plants with rainwater if you’re going to be out in the rain getting wet?” she tells EcouterreAiri Isoda works in a collective of designers and multi-disciplinary creatives.
They are inspired and they have knowledge in fields like architecture, fashion, textile materials and design. In particular, Airi Isoda has a bachelor in architecure ans she worked in Los Angeles. She confesses that she was
inspired by art and fashion and also she is concerned about landscapes. The design below was created to make the most of every rain. You will feed the plants in the same time you walk the street. The recyclable Tyvek material allows water vapor, but not liquid water, to pass through. Via
