Goldwin is currently testing a ski jacket prototype that isn't made from the usual technical fabrics. The jacket has been in developed in collaboration with Spiber, who has discovered a process to create synthetic spider silk on a commercial scale without the need for petrochemicals. This process involves the use of a synthetic protein called fibroin, which goes through a proprietary microbial fermentation and spinning process to create a fabric good enough for outerwear.
