Porcini mushrooms grow all over the Pacific Northwest and are delicious! There are many edible types, but these are the most famous and largest. Boletus edulis
The cap of this Plushroom is made from a soft brown fabric. This fungus has pores instead of gills, so under the cap is a yellow polka dot cotton fabric. The stem is made from a super soft and textured pale brown fabric that I want to rest my head on. The shape of the stem is a little fatter than the classic plushroom shape to make it more true to nature and more pillowy.
At the bottom are 2 tags - one with care instructions and the other has this mushroom's names.
They are weighted with rice to stand on their own, so that you can have a fluffy mushy growing just about anywhere in your home!
Large mushrooms stand 10" tall and about 10" wide
Small mushrooms are 8" tall and about 8" wide. Still pretty big for a mushroom!
Mushrooms are rarely seen alone. Collect a whole family!
In the spirit of fungi, I try to bring trash back to life when making my creations. I aim to source materials as ethically as possible and I love shopping for fabric at thrift and second hand shops. This way I get the most unique textiles. I also reuse shipping materials and your Plushroom might come in a Kombucha box! I also stuff some of my pillows with floof that is a byproduct from a local factory. Reduce Reuse Recycle!
