Amadou Mushroom Purses
We're always on the lookout for unique, beautiful and practical mushroom gifts....but it's always an extra score when we find all three in the same product! These gorgeous purses are made from the Amadou mushroom (Fomes fomentarius, aka The Tinder Polypore) by a master craftsperson in a village in Transylvania, Romania. The mushroom is dried and pressed into sheets (no harsh or toxic chemicals are used in the process) and then sewn together. The feel of the material is very similar to suede. Each purse is decorated with a unique motif (not a selectable option), and the interior is lined with repurposed upholstery covering (color and pattern varies, and is not a selectable option). A truly special gift for anyone with an interest in mushrooms....or purses!
