Mycelium fabrics have a huge market potential and can rapidly gain market share in different sectors.
Flexible mycelium materials are soft and resistant, providing unprecedented design opportunities for bags, apparel, footwear, accessories and so on. At the same time, they are sustainable, as they are created from renewable resources which are animal free and locally sourced. The perfect ingredient for a thorough revolution in fashion.
Redefining cars’ interior
Thanks to their technical properties and appealing aesthetics, mycelium fabrics can be adopted as the perfect material for the manufacturing of seat covers, door panels and for the lining of the inner side of car doors, dashboards, steering wheels… and the materials can be grown in the desired shapes, preventing trimming-waste. As automotive companies are constantly investing substantial resources in R&D of all aspects related to car manufacturing – including vehicles’ interiors – the materials that will emerge through the My-Fi project can represent a perfect alternative to traditional textiles.
