The starter used to make sour milk can be dehydrated on textiles.

Wanderer is a series of textiles with different patterns inspired by the visual styles of cultures where the sour milk comes from.

By applying and drying ­local­ sour milk onto the textile, these patterns become a „storage-medium“ of the starter ­culture of the sour milk.
