Mushroom Dress Aims to 'Change the Way We Use Textiles'

The material can be grown to each dress's exact specifications

Dutch textile designer Aniela Hoitink created this dress out of disc-shaped pieces of mushroom mycelium, meaning that it is both inventive and (potentially) delicious. Hoitink's stated goal is to "change the way we use textiles," by creating a material that can be grown to fit the exact specifications of a dress, meaning that the dress-maker has to create only the amount they need, eliminating waste. Other advantages would of the dress are that it is easy to repair, and compostable.
