Natural Hue Integration in Mycelium-Based Materials: Harnessing Plant-Derived Dyes for Sustainable Biocomposites

This project aims to explore the integration of natural colours derived from plants into mycelium-based materials, thereby enhancing the visual appeal and sustainability of biocomposites. Mycelium, the vegetative part of fungi, has gained attention as a promising material for various applications due to its renewable nature and potential for sustainable objects.


Observation -When reishi mycelium is exposed to natural dyes like those derived from oak, it can potentially absorb the dye and incorporate it into its structure, resulting in coloured mycelium with unique properties. This coloured mycelium can then be further processed and utilized in applications such as sustainable packaging, textile dyeing, or as a decorative material in design and architecture.
