Sustainability at Scale

To bring their revolutionary MyloTM material to the world, they have formed a consortium of iconic companies: Adidas, Kering, lululemon, and Stella McCartney. Mylo products are on the way. Way better materials for a way better world.

Materials in Use: Mylo™, B Silk™, MicroSilk™

Mylo™ - A sustainable alternative to leather that will become available to the world through our consortium partners. Made from infinitely renewable mycelium, the complex latticework of underground fibers is so strong they hold the planet together.

B Silk™ - A versatile biomaterial made with renewable inputs – sugar, water, and yeast – that offers a myriad of applications in beauty, textiles, biomedicine, and more.

MicroSilk™ - A sustainably produced textile spun from the same proteins as a spider’s web and created using biology, fermentation, and traditional textile production.
