A cape made from the silk of 1.2m Golden Orb spiders from Madagascar will be on display at the V&A in London this month. This glorious creation took eight years to create and uses fabric not woven in more than a century. The hand-woven textiles are naturally golden in colour. The cape was made by Simon Peers and Nicholas Godley. For more go to The Guardian.
