Mycelium Foam

Also known as
Mushroom Foam, MycoComposite™

What is Mycelium Foam?

To make mycelium foam, the vegetative roots of mushrooms are grown as a natural glue around agricultural waste, usually from hemp, kenaf, or flax. The result is a completely renewable, home-compostable packaging material with an awesome, earthy texture to it.

Mycelium performs well in drop and compressions tests, making it a good option for packaging fragile and high-end consumer goods.
