The designer Emilie Burfeind has created the “Sneature” sock shoe which is made from dog hair and mushrooms. The production uses dog hair was spun by Berlin-based start-up Modus Intarsia into high-quality “Chiengora”. This sustainable resource is then used in a 3D knitting process to make a shoe, while a mycelium is mixed with a cellulose-based material to serve as the sole. The whole shoe is biodegradable, whereby the fibres of the knitted upper material can be removed and spun into new yarn.
