Lululemon releases Mylo material collection

Lululemon has dropped two bags made from mushrooms as part of the company’s ongoing commitment to sustainability.

The Canadian sportswear and accessories retailer has launched the world’s first yoga accessory made from Mylo, a vegan, sustainable, animal-free leather alternative made from renewable mycelium (the root structure of mushrooms) ), a process developed by California-based Bolt Threads.

There are two bags in the collection: the Meditation and Yoga Mat Bag, a 3-in-1 yoga mat bag with a unique design that doubles as a floor mat and can be rolled up or folded in half to carry, and the Barrel Duffel Bag with pockets and a removable pouch to keep your workout gear separate.

Both bags were developed by Lululemon’s accessories design team and “thoughtfully” featured Mylo in the accessories’ delicate woven handles and woven pulls.

Lululemon first revealed its plans to make yoga accessories out of mushrooms last July as part of its investment in material innovations that could help enable a more sustainable future as a founding member of the Mylo consortium.

The Meditation and Yoga Mat Bag retails for $238 and the Barrel Bag retails for $328. Both can be purchased online in North America and in select stores worldwide.
