Stella McCartney, Lululemon, Adidas and luxury fashion group Kering have partnered up with biotechnology startup Bolt Threads to have access to MYLO. The MYLO leather is made from mycelium. The mycelium cells are fed with sawdust and other organic materials, and grown on square mats. They grow into a foamy layer in a humidity and temperature controlled environment. The mycelium is then turned into a sheet of cork-like material, but thinner and more flexible. the sheet is then tanned and dyed by the same tanneries for animal leather. The material mimics the look and feel of animal leather. It reduces greenhouse gas emissions, and consumes less water and natural resources.
