Japanese bra grows rice

May 12, 2010 at 1:49 PM

TOKYO, May 12 (UPI) -- A Japanese company said it is celebrating rising interest in agriculture among the country's women with a bra that grows rice.

Triumph, which last year created a bra with food bowls to remind busy women to eat, said its latest creation features pots instead of cups and fastens with seedlings and a plastic water hose, Britain's The Sun reported Wednesday.

Company officials said the bra, which grows rice, is aimed at raising awareness of food self-sufficiency and inspiring women to consider farming.

"Over the last year, young Japanese women have taken a tremendous interest in agriculture," Triumph official Yoshiko Masuda said. "We wanted other women to experience farming as well. That's what inspired this bra."
