Leather made from mushrooms.

A new company of biotechnological materials called Bolt Threads has created a material similar to leather that they call Mylon, this could revolutionize the fake leather market allowing to alleviate the burden of raising animals an extremely polluting process and for many ethically questionable, it does not depend on pollutants plastics like many other varieties of fake leather.

The futuristic material is made of Mycelium the hidden part of the mushrooms, they are mattresses made up of a tangle of interconnected filaments, it is so prolific that according to some estimates if all the mushroom farms that currently operate will work doing badly or could replace all the leather on the planet .

The advantages are abundant on the one hand the mycelium does not rot like real leather and does not have to be preserved the production process is also significantly less carbon intensive, due to the simple fact that no cows need to be raised, this takes about 2 years plus you need to grow your food, Mylo takes less than two weeks to grow.

Like the resistance to change towards more natural meat and ecology, our dependence on industrial livestock farming could soon have an end and it would be a great victory for the environment, what opinion do you have on this, let me know.
