Silk has always been prized; it has even been used as currency. Greek and Roman nobles valued silk so highly that they reserved it for themselves.
This silk is from the oldest producer of natural silk in Germany - with over ninety years of experience of transforming silk into silk yarns for weaving.
In the WARP PRODUCTION
40,000 filaments of coils are processed into the delicate and strong fabric which is checked electronically for errors. The weaving is done on
an air-jet on modern jacquard – loom with up to 40,000 warp strikes and when finished the centenary old knowledge of superb finishing is applied. The earliest surviving example of silk fabric dates from about 3630 BC.
