Session Title: How Biotechnology Is Enabling the Future of Fashion

How much do you know about the materials you wear every day? The fashion industry faces huge sustainability challenges, and Bolt Threads is excited to tackle them by producing more sustainable textiles. Attendees will learn how Bolt Thread's Engineered Silk technology was inspired by the way spiders spin silk, how its model of textile production will give it more control over resource consumption, and how it plans to address sustainability challenges in the fashion industry, which are much larger than most people realize.
