For the design and the development of the mushroom suitcase crucial was the knowledge that a material found in mushrooms known as mycelium can through a process which takes about 15 days provide us with a sturdy material with little flexibility that could be the externalcover for the suitcase. The interior is made of wood. The mycelium blended with wood residues and lavender seeds protects the wooden suitcase from breaking.
A new innovative lock has been also introdused to this suitcase. There is a wooden frame which holds the two parts of the suitcase together when locked. On the frame there are four handles which lock and unlock the case.
