Mycotech Labs creates sustainable, durable, and affordable bio-materials utilizing agro-waste and mycelium for various applications. Their core, patent-protected product is a mycelium-based leather called Mylea. The material is incredibly customizable and strong, allowing it to be used in a range of applications from shoes and jewelry to building materials. The company is primarily focused on commercial fashion applications and just launched a pilot program with six global brands. Additionally, Mycotech secured $10M of sales agreements until 2024 with a Japanese distributor to make the material for 200,000 shoes.
