Reinventing a smart, circular and competitive textile industry with advanced myco-fibres
The MY-FI project targets the development of responsible fabrics composed of a new and innovative material based on mycelium micro-fibres, to meet the latest market demands for beautiful, sustainable and functional materials.
The MY-FI project contributes to further improve the EU textile industry by developing mycelium-based fabrics. Such innovative materials are fully biobased, customizable, highly performing and can be produced through advanced manufacturing processes. Mycelium fabrics have the potential to match the consumers’ demands for sustainable and functional products, opening new designing opportunities for several market applications, resulting in positive economic impact and environmental relief. By valorising other industries’ residues, MY-FI will contribute to implement a cross-sectoral approach to Circular Economy, enhancing the competitiveness of local value chains.
