Spider silk is renowned for having a number of strikingly versatile properties, so the Bolt Threads Spider Silk Ties aim to make use of them in a fashionable way. One of the first products to be made using the silk, the ties are crafted from silk that was harvested from genetically modified microorganisms in a lab that produces the silk at a far faster rate.

The silk proteins that are created by the microorganisms are spun into long fibers that are then woven into durable ties that are also highly soft and lightweight in design. One of the best properties about the Bolt Threads Spider Silk Ties is that they are an environmental conscious creation as they do away with the need for petroleum-based polymers.
