Spalted wood (wood colored by fungi) came into popularity in medieval Europe as a precious material for wood marquetry. Four hundred years after its peak, the pigments extracted from these rare fungi have found novel uses in the sciences, particularly in the field of textile dyes. Spalting fungal pigments have proved to be highly effective coatings for textile fibers. In this paper, three fungal pigments were soaked in raw linseed oil and applied to cotton, polyester, and nylon. The red pigment from S. cuboideum proved to be an excellent dye, particularly on cotton and polyester. View the paper here.
