Sustainable Fashion through Alternative Leathers
What’s the strangest piece of clothing in your wardrobe? Something with a goofy print? Something colourful and flamboyant? Soon that top spot of weird could be taken by some out-there materials like alternative leathers. As a follow-up to our investigation of Australia’s cotton industry, we took a look at Mushroom Leather. Co-founder of LifeCykel, Julian Mitchell, tells us about Mushroom Leather; one such alternative leather that hopes to help push the future of sustainability in Australia. We also checked back in with GoodOnYou founder Gordon Renouf to see the impact of alternatives like these.
