Kraig, Warwick To Codevelop Textiles Made With Spider Silk

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories Inc., Lansing, Mich., and Warwick Mills Inc., New Ipswich, N.H., have signed an agreement to codevelop and commercialize advanced textile products made using Kraig's Monster Silk™ recombinant spider silk technology.

Initially, the companies will focus on weaving and testing the textiles for near-term applications. Kraig and Warwick will jointly own any product-related intellectual property that results from the collaboration.

"The pairing of Kraig's spider silk technology with Warwick's world-class technical textiles applications engineering and weaving abilities is a bold move, which we believe will enhance and accelerate the penetration of spider silk into technical textile markets," said Kim Thompson, CEO and founder, Kraig Biocraft.

"These technologies could potentially result in higher performance textiles, which would enable very advanced safety and military equipment," said Warwick President Charles Howland. "This collaborative agreement is a big step forward in the development of exciting new textiles with potential applications for the technical textiles and protective textiles marketplace."
