Late actor Luke Perry was buried in a suit made of mushrooms, according to his daughter’s Instagram account.
Sophie Perry (@lemonperry) wrote that her father was excited about the idea and that to be buried in one was one of his final wishes.
What Is A Mushroom Suit?
The handcrafted suits are the creation of designer Daniel Silverstein and his company Coieo. Dubbed the ‘Infinity Burial Suit’, it’s a completely biodegradable garment made of mushrooms and other microorganisms. This ‘biomix’ purportedly helps neutralize the toxins built up in our bodies, better decomposes the body, and returns nutrients to plant life.
The suits run $1,500 and come in three sizes, which were all sold out at the time of writing.
Sophie praised the idea as ‘genius’ and accompanied her caption with a picture of mushrooms from the Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve in California.
Her father was buried in Tennessee, after dying of a stroke on March 4 at age 52.
