MycoTEX X Karin Vlug

A collaboration with Dutch textile designer Aniela Hoitink who created MycoTEX: a mycelium (root of a mushroom) based innovative textile grown in a laboratory. We are developing the new design approach for fashion designers and new materials. We ask ourselves and research what it means for a fashion designer to design with this new material.

We are a part of the Future of Living Materials project. Special thanks to our partners State of Fashion and Wageningen University and Research who initiated this beautiful project.

See for more information about MycoTEX.

Here you see the first series of 3dimensional garment shaped moulds I designed. We experiment growing MycoTEX onto them and we figure out what it means to design for example a collar or armhole in the future.
