Mycelium Textiles consists of two series of
experimental textile design prototypes that
explore the potential of bio-based mycelium
techniques combined with textiles to develop
new bio-integrated processes for sustainable textile fabrication and embellishment.
Mycelium is the underground root system of
fungi. By inducing a sterilised food substrate
with mycelium liquid cultures or mycelium
spawn it is possible to grow new materials
exploiting the mycelium transformation of
the food substrate into a material usable in a
textile context.
