Bolt Threads is an innovative biotech company that has developed proprietary technologies to create Engineered Silk fibers based on proteins found in nature. These programmable fibers, which can be tuned to provide superior comfort and performance, represent the most significant innovation the textile industry has seen for decades.
We started working with Bolt Threads in 2014, developing their brand identity, website, office environment, and a generative art tool using WebGL to create animated graphic silk-thread patterns.
We continued our collaboration in early 2017, as Bolt was preparing to launch their first ever commercial product using bioengineered spider silk; The BoltSpun silk knit necktie. Produced in a limited edition of 50 units, we created a unique, hand-numbered packaging solution using highly recyclable materials.
In addition to their partnership with Patagonia, Bolt recently announced a unique partnership with Stella McCartney to bring sustainable fabrics to high-end fashion.
