About

There are 7,7 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. MycoTEX creates sustainable fabric from mycelium - mushroom roots. Combined with 3D technology we create seamless garments that perfectly fit your body without the need to cut and sew! This new supply chain eliminates the need for animals, petroleum or hazardous chemicals and is shortening production time; local production is reducing transport. We only grow what we need and have no textile waste during the production phase. Once you’ve worn it out, simply bury the garment in the ground to naturally decompose.
