It all begins with Fine Mycelium. Our innovation and the platform for our products.
What is the Fine Mycelium™ process?
MycoWorks uses mycelium, a natural and abundant resource, to create Fine Mycelium, a patented technology in a class of its own: the next evolution in mycelium materials. Fine Mycelium engineers mycelium cells as they grow to create three dimensional structures that are densely entwined and inherently strong.
The future of materials
Fine Mycelium is a materials science and biotechnology breakthrough that offers designers total creative control. Delivering uncompromising quality and aesthetic expression, Fine Mycelium can be fully optimized from initial growth to the final stage of harvest: a revolutionary advantage of our process. Softness, drape, thickness, shape, texture, flexibility, strength and density are just some of the specifications designers can unlock with our Fine Mycelium platform.
Fine Mycelium™ vs mycelium “mushroom” leather
Fine Mycelium™ is a patented technology in a class of its own: the next evolution in mycelium materials.
Fine Mycelium™ is the first biomaterial that matches the strength, hand feel and durability of cowhide—the gold standard for leather.
Peak performance, endless design possibilities, lower environmental impact and full creative control are all features of our material, Fine Mycelium™—it’s far more than a sustainable option for leather.
Held to the highest quality standards
For the last three years, one of the world’s most respected leather testing houses has tested Reishi™ across hundreds of samples and protocols. The results reflect a revolutionary breakthrough within biomaterials: Reishi™ matches the strength and durability of cowhide—the gold standard for leather—and we’re still improving.
