Traditional leather is a byproduct of the red meat industry with supply declining. Our MycoFlex™ Platform offers a solution to animal-derived leather by using mycelium. Ecovative’s non-exclusive partnership with Bolt Threads aims to commercialize this textile application and bring products to market that consumers will love.
Grown in 9 days
Using mycelium, premium grade, 100% vegan “leather” can be grown in 9 days versus years for animal hides.
A Better Way
Animal hide shapes lead to fabrication challenges and significant waste in processing. We can grow our mycelium in any shape or size allowing manufacturers to eliminate waste streams and livestock in the leather supply chain.
