Reinventing a smart, circular and competitive textile industry with advanced myco-fibres

Project description

Fungi for fashion answer call for eco-friendly fabrics

The mycelium is the vegetative part of a fungus consisting of long, thread-like, interwoven structures. Such networks of fungal threads are remarkable. In fact, mycelia can be used to develop innovative products for several industries, ranging from pack(ag)ing to textile. This is particularly good news for the fashion industry, where sustainable and biodegradable textiles are a welcome addition to the modern 'fast fashion' wardrobe. The EU-funded MY-FI project will develop a new nonwoven fabric made of mycelium micro-fibres, with improved performance and reduced environmental impact in comparison to current commercially available fibres. The project will optimise and upscale new biofabrication protocols together with wet processing and material finishing. Its goal is to meet consumer demand for sustainable and eco-friendly textile products.
