Lesson Learned

Fun fact that I learned in fashion:

did you know........


that spider silk is is the strongest fiber in the world?
stronger than a bullet proof vest?

as we speak military engineers are testing the prototypes of spider silk infused, bullet-proof vests. Developed by a scientist who injected the dna, that makes spider produce this silk, into a goat and then extracting the protein from the goat's milk into a man-made spider silk. Now that is amazing.
