Leather from Fungus – Muskin
Mushroom leather (Muskin) is one of the best-known vegan leather types besides pineapple leather. Mushroom leather is very stable, flexible and by far the most robust vegan leather type. Some manufacturers have already advanced production and are engaged in the development of bricks and furniture. Sound crazy, but this material has also some other beneficial characteristics. Grown into the right thickness, it is stronger than a solid brick. The look generally resembles cowhide and could replace it theoretically. A worthwhile goal, considering that a fungus of the same size needs 50 times less time compared to cowhide.
