This robe is a stunning and unique work of art made from the silk of more than a million female Golden Orb Weaver spiders collected in the highlands of Madagascar. The silk is naturally this dazzling golden colour. The robe has been created by Simon Peers & Nicholas Godley. The silk is extracted¬†from the spider using a device that pulls the silk strands from the spider’s spinneret¬†and then the spider is set free.
