Introducing the next evolution in mycelium: Reishi Fine Mycelium, a premium, natural option for leather.
Exclusive to MycoWorks, the Fine Mycelium process creates the interlocking, cellular structures that give Reishi its inherent strength and durability. Unlike “mushroom leather” (compressed mycelium) or traditional leather, Reishi is custom-grown to finely tune for fullness and the highest performance standards.
Fine Mycelium is a breakthrough in materials science and biotechnology, and a platform for new design possibilities.
Reishi Brown Natural is a signature Fine Mycelium material in a warm, golden finish and natural grain. Soft and full-bodied, this chrome-free material features Reishi’s organic patina in both Standard and High Strength editions. Vegetable tannins showcase Reishi’s natural hue and the variations in grain unique to each sheet.
Reishi Black Emboss is a Fine Mycelium material with a delicate pebble grain and gentle sheen. Its refined finish is crafted to create sophisticated visual transparencies. This chrome-free material pairs Reishi’s signature strength and supple body with a sleek hand and an immaculate, ebony finish.
