Reclaimed Mushroom Wood
The unique texture setting Mushroom Wood siding and paneling apart from other reclaimed products are, indeed, the effects of growing mushrooms! Used
originally to line the boxes of mushroom crops, Mushroom Wood is derived from salvaged Hemlock and Cypress boards, repurposed into spectacular wood
During the process of fungiculture, the boards are exposed to an abundance of acidity and water released from the compost used to grow the mushrooms. These enzymes devour the soft fibers in the wood, leaving only the tough, durable wood behind. The light-weight characteristic of this wood, in conjunction with its' natural resistance to moisture, makes for a versatile product for exquisite interior and exterior rustic designs.
