Dutch textile desigenr Aniela Hoitink is combining a fabric made from mushroom roots with 3D-printing to custom-make clothes.
Hoitink worked with the Myco Design Lab, a collaboration of the University of Utrecht, Officina Corpuscoli and Mediamatic, to make a garment entirely from mycelium.
So what?In Hoitink's vision, sustainable fibres go only so far. The consumption model also needs to shift. Can the combination of low-impact materials with demand-responsive sales models help clean up the fashion industry?
