Would you wear a wedding dress made from fungus?
Halibutboy Flatfish stashed this in Gross!
Despite the fact that it's not that hard to get fabric that is, you know, compostable and all-natural and nutty-crunchy as all heck... designers have decided they need to up the ante by growing a dress out of fungus. Or making it out of truly frightening looking "fermented material". Or out of mouse cells.
I think what it's made of matters less than how it looks, how it feels, and the cost.
The bigger insight is that mycology can provide materials that can be used in products we buy.
