Canadian athletic apparel and accessories brand Lululemon is launching two bags made from Mylo, a material made from renewable mycelium, the root structure of mushrooms, and created by a team of scientists and materials experts at Bolt Threads. Lululemon first revealed its plans to make mushrooms last July, as part of the company’s ongoing sustainability efforts. The two “mushroom bags” – the Meditation and Yoga Mat Bag and the Barrel Duffel Bag – will be available on lululemon.com and will also be on display in select Lululemon stores in Tokyo, Melbourne, Sydney, Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong.
Lululemon is an original partner of the Mylo Consortium, a group of companies investing in the Mylo material innovation. In addition to Lululemon, this group includes Adidas, Kering and Stella McCartney.
