“According to Chinese mythology, the 27th century BC marked the birth of Sericulture, the rearing of silk worms for raw silk production. The story has it, that a silk cocoon fell into an Empress’ tea, and as she unraveled it from the cup, she had the idea to weave it. Silk and the silk road became a focus of commerce for hundreds of years. In time, silk would conquer the world as people were seduced by its sensuous look and feel.”
