MycoFutures is creating sustainable alternatives to leather and other materials using mycelium, the root system of fungi. By adapting mushroom cultivation techniques and vertical farming, combined with novel tanning methods, they are creating an innovative textile without the use of animal products or plastics. The first of its kind in Canada, the company’s intensive R&D is leading the way in durable and luxurious materials and will have a sustainable impact on the fashion, textiles and other industries. Since pivoting from farming gourmet mushrooms to starting MycoFutures, the company has created their first materials prototypes in collaboration with a leather artisan, and been recognized for their ingenuity at such notable events as Collision Conference and MaRS Climate Impact conference.
