Ecovative was initially behind the Mylo mushroom leather and is now looking to produce other leather alternatives. Its main focus right now is to recreate animal hide. The company is relying mostly on mycelium to create vegan leather options that do not contain harmful products such as plastic. 

The cooperative between Ecovative, Bestseller, and PVH is set to make groundbreaking changes as they hope to be able to create sustainable vegan leather that still has the same benefits as real leather. One of the many big goals that they will start planning for in 2022 is creating vegan leather shoes.

This kind of cooperative could produce amazing results for the vegan leather industry and make strides towards pushing real leather out of the picture. There is no need for real leather or the animal cruelty that it produces in order to make a fashion statement, especially when such amazing alternatives like this exist.
