National Second prize winner


Live Matter is a biomaterial of a sponge that resembles animal leather.


Live Matter is a growing matter from a mushroom.
For its growing we need a farm, very little energy and a sample hall to add to its wonderful qualities, healing biological colours.

This matter is interesting for the global vegan market as a substitute for natural leather.

We want to start a business that is responsible to animals, supportive to natural processes, needs small investment, doesn’t have risk, and brings value to the new age and our planet.

Live Matter has surprisingly good behaviour as a leather with its elastic, healthy, artistic and durable qualities. It doesn’t leave any footprint and is also reusable for a bioindustrial material, which we aim to explore deeper and we are looking forward to present the results soon.
