Bolt Projects' Mylo Driver Bag is Made of a Fungus-Crafted Leather

Bolt Projects' Mylo Driver Bag is the world's best alternative to traditional animal leather. Crafted from Mylo, a mycelium-created material made from the underground root structure of mushrooms, this fully vegan tote bears a striking resemblance to actual leather. The use of this material allows the Mylo Driver Bag to take on the appearance of contemporary leather offerings while being cruelty-free and sustainably made.

Designed in collaboration with Portland-based brand Chester Wallace, Bolt Projects' Mylo Driver Bag is unisex and meant to "represent the future of accessories." The bag is a recreation of the Chester Wallace classic Driver silhouette, with every offering hand-cut and sewn in Portland, Oregon. The Mylo material is paired beautifully with a canvas base, which also lends itself to the durability of the tote.
