Biolea

A SMALL ACCESORY COLLECTION MADE WITH LEATHER-LIKE FUNGI MATERIAL

The project

Taking inspiration from nature, we have developed a unique technology to grow novel materials, assimilable and alternative to traditional animal leather. Resonant with the rhythms of natural ecosystems, our products originate from renewable resources that are leftovers deriving from other production processes (i.e. circularity). Our materials are grown by means of fungal fermentation, without using or generating any toxic compound or waste. Starting from our biofabricated materials, we design and realize products suitable for everyday life and providing delightful and novel experiences to end users.
