MycoTEX


Summary

MycoTEX develops custom-made clothes made from decomposable mushroom roots.

Based on the biological life cycle we create garments that perfectly fit YOUR body, shape and style.


Description

There are 7 billion people on this planet that all need to be clothed. Many of us enjoy fashion and trends, but the clothes that we get rid of are a big problem. For MycoTEX we went to the root of the problem.

MycoTEX creates sustainable fabric from mycelium, the roots of mushrooms. With our Body-Based modelling process we create garments of this new textile that perfectly fit your body without the need to cut and sew!

Our shorter supply chain eliminates the need for chemicals and pesticides. We reduce water usage by 99,5% compared to cotton and local production is reducing transport. We only grow what we need and have no textile waste during the production phase (10-30%). And AFTER wearing, you can simply burry your garment in the ground and it will naturally decompose.

We have developed a series of prototypes and are working on mass customisation.

Right now, we are looking for partners for upscaling.


Possible replacement to

Traditional textile materials such as cotton or fake leather without the requirement of chemicals, pesticides, heavy use of water and/or farmland. Traditional fabrication techniques such as spinning, weaving, cutting and sewing.
