Mushrooms Aren’t Just for Eating: Meet the Future of Leather!
for the time being: during the present time, but it may change in the future
A company in California named MycoWorks has made a new kind of leather from mushrooms. This leather is good for the environment and looks and feels like real leather. They call it Fine Mycelium. It is strong and does not harm the environment. Big fashion brands like Hermés are starting to use it for bags and clothes. Unlike making leather from cows, mushroom leather is carbon-neutral. It is a better choice, but for the time being, it is expensive. Reducing its cost is crucial for it to become a widely used, earth-friendly choice.
