Golden Spider Silk – Victoria and Albert Museum Through June 5th

According to my very reliable source, S.L., this exhibit at the V&A which ends in just a few days, is not to be missed.

According to the V&A: “This display showcases the world’s largest pieces of cloth made from spider silk. It includes a brocaded shawl made from the silk of more than one million female golden orb-weaver spiders collected in the highlands of Madagascar, as well as a cape on public display for the first time. The display also features background material and a short film revealing the process.”   Watch video
