There’s a new world of lab-grown replacements coming for everything, from the meat department in your grocery store to a department store near you.

Lab-made leather replacements will soon join vegetable-based meat replacements on store shelves thanks to startups like Bolt Threads, which today announced that it would join companies like Modern Meadow in the quest to bring to market vegetable-based replacements for animal hides.

Earlier this year, the Silicon Valley-based Bolt  Threads raised a $123 million financing to expand its business beyond the manufacture of spider silk, which had brought the company acclaim — and an initial slate of products.

The announcement today of its new product, Mylo, is the first step on that path
