(Adnkronos) – Biomaterials Leader Establishes European Operations to Meet Luxury and Fashion Industry Demand For Its Fine Mycelium™ Leather Alternative
PARIS, Oct. 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Today biomaterials innovator MycoWorks announced the opening of its new office in Paris, France.
“Many of MycoWorks’ luxury partners are based in Europe,” said Matt Scullin, CEO of MycoWorks. “A presence in Paris allows us to work closely with brands as they move towards commercializing products made with Fine Mycelium.”
Unlocking new design possibilities, MycoWorks’ Fine Mycelium technology engineers mycelium – the infinitely renewable root structure of mushrooms – as it grows, resulting in a natural material that matches the look, feel, and performance of the highest quality animal leathers with low environmental impact.
The Paris office, on the prestigious Rue de la Paix, brings the company’s Fine Mycelium material closer to leading fashion houses. Designers, brand partners, and local leather ateliers can experience Fine Mycelium materials first-hand, learn more about the company’s patented technology, and connect with local team members.
“Following the groundbreaking in South Carolina for our full-scale production plant, opening an office in Paris confirms MycoWorks’ commitment to providing dedicated support to our luxury partners,” said Fred Martel, MycoWorks SVP of Sales and Business Development.
