Movie: golden spider-silk cape by Simon Peers and Nicholas Godley

In this movie from the V&A museum in London, Simon Peers and Nicholas Godley talk about the cape they made by harvesting silk from over a million wild spiders in Madagascar. The silk is naturally golden in colour and the spiders take just a week to replenish their supply once released back into the wild.

The cape is on show at the museum until 5 June 2012. Read more about it in our story on Dezeen.
