Bolt Threads creates sustainable solutions for the apparel and beauty industries. With nature as our inspiration, we invent and scale cutting-edge materials that put us on a path towards a more sustainable future. Taking inspiration from the natural world, we experiment with biology and invent new technologies to find material solutions that work with nature, not against it.
We believe that through science, creativity, and an unyielding sense of optimism, we can innovate our way not just out of our current resource-constrained reality, but into the best days the planet has seen.
Way better materials for a way better world.
Mylo™, a sustainable alternative to leather, will become available to the world through Bolt’s consortium partners, including Adidas, Kering, Lululemon, Stella McCartney, a group of world-class companies investing in meaningful material innovation. Made from mycelium — a sprawling, infinitely renewable, interlaced web that fruits mushrooms — Mylo is soft, supple, and less harmful to the environment. Mylo is certified bio-based, meaning it’s made from predominantly renewable ingredients that can be found in nature.
