Sobre cogumelos / About mushrooms


“Mushrooms can be used for dyeing wool and other natural fibers. The chromophores of mushroom dyes are organic compounds and produce strong and vivid colors, and all colors of the spectrum can be achieved with mushroom dyes. Before the invention of synthetic dyes, mushrooms were the source of many textile dyes”






Did you know that?

I love mushrooms. I love to see them, I love to eat them and I love their symbiotic way of living and growing. Each type of mushroom is associated to a specific type of tree and both of the species benefit with each other existence.
In one of my hiking trips in Sintra I found the most amazing “collection” of mushrooms, I was amazed with the quantity and diversity. It was actually hard not to step on one of them.  Finding different mushrooms and in different life states is truly amazing.

Sabiam disto?

Adoro cogumelos. Adoro observá-los, adoro comê-los e adoro a forma simbiótica como vivem e como crescem. Cada tipo de cogumelo é associado a um tipo específico de árvore e ambas as espécies beneficiam com esta existência mútua.

Num dos meus passeios a Sintra encontrei uma “colecção” maravilhosa de cogumelos e fiquei bastante espantada com a quantidade e diversidade que encontrei – até era difícil ter cuidado para não pisar nenhum. Encontrar diferentes cogumelos e em diferentes estados de vida é verdadeiramente fantástico.
