Fashion designer Stella McCartney has partnered with Bolt Threads for sustainable fashion. Combining McCartney’s relentless pursuit of sustainable materials with Bolt Threads’ proprietary breakthroughs in industrial biotechnology, the partnership represents a step-change for the future of apparel production and also the fashion industry at large.

This new collaboration will push boundaries in fabric innovation and usher in the next generation of cutting-edge textiles. By partnering with Bolt Threads, Stella McCartney has taken another step forward in creating a positive environmental impact, and pursues the next chapter of innovation and technology in advanced, luxury materials.

“On a personal and professional level partnering with Bolt Threads is so exciting, because it feels like everything is finally coming together and the dots are being connected between fashion, sustainability and tech innovation. This is something that I’ve been personally on a journey to find for much of my career and I just feel like there is finally a new opportunity to bring so many industries together and for them to all work as one for a better planet. It is a truly modern and mindful approach to fashion. The industry has so much heritage, but at times it can be damaging to the environment and it can also drag you in a backwards direction and for me I always want to move forward in fashion and this is truly a moment to celebrate technology and the future of fashion," said Stella McCartney.

“From the day we founded Bolt Threads, we’ve dreamt of partnering with Stella McCartney,” said Dan Widmaier, CEO of Bolt Threads. “Not only does she have an unparalleled aesthetic, but her values and pioneering sustainable fashion align perfectly with our vision for the future of fashion.”

Through this partnership, both Bolt Threads and Stella McCartney will pave the way for a future of environmentally friendly luxury fabric innovation. (RR)
