Would you wear a mushroom shirt?

This spring/summer Plant Chicago is hosting artist and mycologist Xiili Bassett, assisting in her newest project titled hyphaenate. During the coming months she will be attempting to create a textile out of mycelium – the ‘root’ of fungi such as mushrooms. She will then use this fabric to create clothing. When we talk about local circular economies, this is an example of local in the extreme! Imagine being able to grow your own clothing! Below is her introduction to the project, and stay tuned to our blog for future updates. Better yet, stop by for a Circular Economy Workshop, and check out her progress yourself!
