The Wonders of Silk
Luxury, beauty, refinement, elegance, sensuality-silk is synonymous with all of these.
NO FIBER-natual or manmade-rivals its versatility.
Silk is light but strong, smooth and soft, supremely adaptable.
It can be made wonderfully warm or deliciously cool.
It can be dyed with infinite subtlety or boldness of color.
When worn draped, its fluidity is spellbinding.
Silk is sumptuous, royal, exotic and erotic. Most of all is simple sheer beauty.
There is no time in silk’s history when it was not sought, valued, a symbol of the best, the most royal and honored gift.
Silk has been used for currency, worth its weight in gold, taxes and ransoms have been paid in fabric.
Silk is rot proof, important for sewing thread in fitness and strength. Weight for weight, it is stronger than a steel rod.
