Growing alternative materials for the fashion industry from fungal mycelium

Growing alternative materials for the fashion industry from fungal mycelium

Fungal mycelium is an interesting material due to its structural features. Living fungal cells act as the engine for the creation of new exciting biobased materials. 

In this project, the scientists aim to understand the growing behaviour of mycelium as they develop an industrially scalable process to make a leather-like material that would replace animal and synthetic leather. In this talk, you will learn about the mycelium technology and ongoing research activities from a scientific and design perspective.
