FUNGI ACCESSORY

A SMALL ACCESORY COLLECTION MADE WITH LEATHER-LIKE FUNGI MATERIAL

The project

The idea is to use MOGU technology employing fungi metabolism to produce a leather-like material, combining fine design, unique touch and feel, high performance and sustainability. Now MOGU leather can potentially outperform commercially-available conventional, synthetic, plant and bio-fabricated competing solutions. The objective of both partners is to develop a market-ready designer product using MOGU material. They will create a range of small prototype leather accessories, such as wallets and tablet/computer cases to test market insights and contribute to a more sustainable value chain in the fashion industry.
