At the beginning of 2018, Springwise highlighted biotech company Bolt Threads, which had devised a way to bioengineer a yeast-based spider silk for use as threads in clothing manufacture. Bolt wove the material into ties and hats, which it sold through Stella McCartney and Patagonia. But the vision of Bolt’s founder, Dan Widmaier, was always bigger than just one material. So, now Bolt has done it again, with a plant-based synthetic leather suitable for use in clothing. Mylo is a new material that uses the mycelium, a fungus found in the root structure of mushrooms.
