Stella McCartney is a name in the design world that has become synonymous with cruelty-free fashion—and the Stella McCartney Falabella bag is a product that showcases the label's commitment to ethical beauty and luxury. The unique bag is made from a material called 'Mylo' from Bolt Threads, which is a leather-like material made from mycelium, or the roots of a mushroom.
One of the features of the material that makes it particularly noteworthy is the fact that it only requires days to form, unlike animal leather, which takes years. When it comes to finishing the leather alternative, the unique material can be dyed with tea.
The innovative new Stella McCartney handbag made from Mylo will be on display at the Victoria & Albert Museum's Fashioned from Nature exhibit in London until April 21st.
