Jacket made from spider silk to go on sale

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Spider silk may be the holy grail of biomaterials. In nature, it can be tougher than Kevlar, lighter than carbon fiber, and warmer than the densest down, depending on how it's made. Today, Japanese biomaterial company Spiber announced the world’s first outerwear jacket made with spider silk.

But instead of spiders producing its silk, precision-engineered microbes make it.

Spiber unveiled the jacket at a press conference in Tokyo with apparel company The North Face Japan. The high-performance ski jacket, called Moon Parka, will hit shelves for a limited release on December 12, 2019.
