A Mushroom Dress

March 8, 2019
ANIELA HOTINIK—NEFFA

This is not an ordinary dress. It’s a mushroom dress! It was made by a designer. Her name is Aniela Hoitink.

Hoitink made this dress using mycelium. That is the part of a mushroom that grows underground. Hoitink did not find the mycelium in a forest. She grew it in a lab.

Other designers also make things using mycelium. Some say it could be the material of the future.
