How is it grown?
All the lamps are GROWN, not manufactured, from mushrooms. Through a partnership with Ecovative, we are able to grow lamp shades using their extensive mushroom mycelium research, tested technology and patented growing process. The growth process uses agricultural byproducts, such as seed husks and corn stalks, and combines them with liquid mushroom mycelium. The mycelium then binds with these components and grows for several days in custom molds. When the growth process is complete, the material is heated and dried, ending the growth cycle. At the end of its life, the mushroom material can be broken into smaller pieces, then added to your backyard compost to fully biodegrade!
