Latex, long seen as something that necessitated secrecy or censorship, is now celebrated with hypervisibility. Although rubberwear is in the middle of a media renaissance, its journey from Brazilian rainforests to secretive dungeons and now centre stage has been 200 years in the making.
Latex clothing is made from natural rubber. The milky fluid, which coagulates and hardens to form an elastic and waterproof mass, is tapped by making careful incisions with small blades to make clothing. Latex is a better solution than leather and PVC. It fits better, creates lesser CO2 emission, reduces carbon footprint and subsequent dependency on animal and environmental resources.
All the rage for people with a latex fetish and a living nightmare for those with latex allergies
