Why Mycelium ?

Mycelium is the root network of the mushrooms fruit bodies commonly observed in forests. It is highly renewable, incredibly versatile and strong when it comes to material-making. It is also a bioremediator that improves soil health.

Biodesign :
a partnership with Nature

Our team of designers, material specialists and scientists develop high-tech bio-fabrication to help re-shoring the textile & fashion industry in the UK, reduce environmental impacts of companies thanks to the world's most versatile organism : fungi. 

Forage. Extract. Replicate.

From experimental bio-hacking to engineered manufacturing

We strongly believe that technology should be environmentally neutral if not positive. At our hybrid studio/lab we work in R&D between biology, engineering and design.
