MuSkin

MuSkin

WHAT IS MUSKIN? MuSkin is a vegan leather which is produced using skin of mushroom caps.

HOW IS IS MADE? Grown from the extraction of mushroom caps in a controlled environment in large sheets. A cow sized hyde will grow in approximately 2 months. Muskin can be dried then moulded and can assimilate any type of animal skin during the moulding process.

WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE? Suede-like. Softer, more breathable, and more water-repellent than ordinary leather. It is also said to be easily mouldable.

WHAT IS IT USED FOR? Ideal for the use in close-to-skin applications and thanks to its very natural origin it limits bacteria proliferation. Bags, wallets, shoes, hats & clothing (as a vegan leather substitute).

WHAT ARE ITS ECO-BENEFITS? 
• Vegan (no animals are harmed in it’s making) leather made from mushrooms
• Non-toxic tanning process
• 100% Biodegradable
