Forager Fashion Art and Design Program

Get your hands on the next generation of mycelium materials to design your sustainable solution.

FFAD is a progressive design program providing students and independent designers first access to Forager’s revolutionary mycelium foam and leather alternative materials.

Through the FFAD program, accepted participants will be given state of the art mycelium materials and receive prototyping guidance from our experts. Over the course of 15 weeks, FFAD participants and our mycelium specialists will work to bring projects from idea to tangible reality.

The finished designs and products will be featured on Ecovative social media, exhibited in Forager conferences, exhibited in the FFAD gallery show, and published in the FFAD design book alongside work from other program participants, with the possibility of collaborating with Forager on further development of successful projects and business proposals to bring them to market.
