Silk is a wonderful and beautiful natural material
Silk comes originally from China. The manufacturing of silk began over 4000 years ago.
According to a Chinese legend an Empress noticed how a worm spun wire around himself as protection and wanted to wrap herself in a similar thread. She commanded her subjects to loosen the thread and to weave fabric from it. The emperor was raised to a goddess and she is still present in the prayers of silk farmers.
Silk both absorbs moisture and insulates while being thin and strong, it is therefore used for all kinds of clothes and bedding. One of the most important features of the silk is its outstanding shimmer and its ability to reflect light, this feature enhances the luminous power of colours in a unique way.
