    The Pure Human project was designed as a critical design project that aims to address shortcomings concerning the protection of biological information and move the debate forward using current legal structure. Furthermore, the project explores the ability of the technology to shift the perception of the production system for luxury goods as we know it and project its implementation in our current commercial system. The final outcome consists of a range of commercial leather products cultivated from extracted human biological material. The Pure Human project uses Alexander McQueen biological information since his initial hair labels represent a reliable source of authenticated genetic information.
