According to Chinese legend, silk was first discovered by the concubine Lady Lei Zu.
She was having a cup of tea in a garden when some wild cocoons dropped in her cup. As she tried to remove them, she noticed the fine strings of spider web looking things that seemed to stretch on forever. While no one for certain can say who discovered silk, we know it does trace back to ancient China. While silk route the material reached Europe for limited production availability it became a luxury worthy of royalty. The super soft and delicate feel yet durable substance of silk make them ideal for smart outfits in any season.
