The future of design is bio-fabricated
We formulate circular, regenerative solutions for manufacturing textiles & products using native UK fungi species
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. Progress through science can help us resolve the greatest challenges of the 21st century through waste management, bioremediation and a focus on biodegradable and regenerative materials. At our hybrid studio/lab we work in R&D between biology, engineering and design.

Use UK-grown mycelium
Why Mycelium ?
Mycelium is a widespread organism that grows in many ecosystems, and can be infinitely replicated in the lab. It is a highly renewable biomass with incredible versatility and properties including hydrophobicity, fire-retardant and biodegradability. Materials grown with fungi can be 100% organic and compostable. Fungi also operates bioremediation of the soils by ingesting heavy metals and toxic substances.
Made in Britain
Renewable. Organic. Bioremediator.
Made in Britain
Our mushroom species and substrates are UK-sourced and we produce our textile in Yorkshire with local partners
We grow most of our material with green waste from regenerative agriculture and we compost our own waste after production
We are fully open with our processes, how much energy and water we consume, as well as raw materials origin.
Paris born, fashion designer Aurélie Fontan studied symbiotic fashion at the Royal College of Art with a strong focus on biodesign and circular systems. While pioneering bio-fabrication in the fashion industry, Aurélie has integrated Kombucha, slime mould, mycelium and other living systems to circular processes as part of her eponymous award-winning Couture Studio.
Ashley is a product designer and myco-material specialist, the process of growing materials using fungi. Consulting for clients in the biodesign industry, he has explored furniture, decoration and homeware. His work includes art pieces as well as more industrial processes applied to myco-materials.
