Product Description

Check out these amadou magnets, hand crafted from mushrooms in Korond Romania! These are created with amadou, the soft, felt-like fibers found in Fomes fomentarius (tinder fungus). These traditional Romanian crafts are imported directly from the maker, Mako Csaba. Each one is hand crafted so please allow for variation in color. We've put an examples in the product image above.

Amadou, the soft fibers of Fomes fomentarius, was used by ancient people as tinder to light fires. It is highly flammable and catches sparks well. The whole mushroom was often used as a smoldering coal to transport fire. Material made with amadou is flammable, keep it away from sparks and open flame!
