Silk history

silk bed linens

People are usually impressed by the superior quality of silk bed linens, not only with its benefit, but also with its history.

Silk was discovered in China about 4000 years ago. Sometime around 2640 BC, the Empress Si-ling devoted herself to the care of the silkworms and the mulberry trees they fed on. She is credited with having invented the first silk loom and creating a whole new fashion trend – and an industry that employed thousands of people to satisfy the aristocracy’s demand for silk. Her contributions were so important that an annual festival was celebrated in her honor until the Chinese Revolution put an end to such things in 1958.

When looking for relief from physical bedding, it’s good to put silk comforter set in perspective.
