SILK TEXTILE - THE ULTIMATE LUXURY
Silk is one of the most amazingly smooth fibers, revered through history, and valued throughout the world. Silk is incredibly soft with a flattering sheen, giving it a high-end and luxurious appeal. Even though it has a delicate appearance it has good strength with excellent drape. It resists soil and odors well.
Silk is the most hypoallergenic of all fabrics, excellent for people with allergies or sensitivities. It is cool for summer with excellent ventilation and warm in winter. BTW, the protein sericin (silk gum) is said to promote skin regeneration and used in cutting edge cosmetic industry.
The history of silk goes back to ancient China as far ago as to 4000 BC. It was used for thousands of years not just for clothing but for art, paper, and even as a monetary standard. It has been and still is a synonym of luxury and beauty, found in tombs of ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome.
Note that many fabrics called satin are synthetic fabrics made from petroleum-based polyesters and feel like plastic. These are not like silk at all.
