The future of fashion manufacturing
MycoTEX is the only 3D manufacturing method allowing for seamless and custom products grown from home compostable mushroom roots
MycoTEX is not just a material, but a holistic solution for the entire fashion supply chain.
Local for Local
Producing fashion locally has not been done at scale, due to high labor costs, a lack of skilled workers and the fact that all supplies generally still need to come from Asia. MycoTEX solves this puzzle: raw materials can be grown locally through fermentation and its manufacturing method is fully automated, without any weaving or stitching, in an ultra transparent system that also eliminates the risk of centralizing production in one region only.
MycoTEX products can be manufactured by adding a few extensions to existing machines that are already used in the industry. This allows us to scale fast, because existing factories can easily implement our method and could also start new local manufacturing plants without making huge investments.
Every season, countless pieces of clothing and footwear go to waste because they are not the right size or color. MycoTEX can work fully on demand, making each item custom to size and taste, thus minimizing returns. We can also create shapes and textures that could not be achieved with traditional methods.
Unlike the traditional fashion industry, MycoTEX does not need any farmland, pesticides or hazardous chemicals and uses less water. The products do not need to be washed in the machine, but can just be wiped clean. After usage they can be home composted.
