Description
Introduction

As an ancient Chinese legend goes, there is a holy mulberry tree called Fusang on earth which soars into the sky, and on top of the Fusang tree stands the Court of Heaven, where there is an ingenious female weaver. Then from a time that nobody knows exactly when, mulberry groves started rooting in soil prosperously, while sounds of looms spread across the land. Do the heavenly Fusang and the weaver descend to earth to become the mulberries and weavers, and bring us the brilliant silk? How did silk exactly originate on the land with a history of five thousand years? How are single silk threads spun into colorful silk products such as silk damask and gauze? Do these popular idioms such as “a glorious future” and “blue comes from the indigo plant but is bluer than the plant itself” (meaning the pupil surpasses the master) have any relation with silk? What role did silk play in the Chinese history, and how silk managed to evolve into such a major industry along the time? If you re interested in finding answers to all these questions, just follow us to explore the world of silk in History of Silk. You will find hereabout green mulberry leaves, magic silkworms, silvery raw silk, graceful silk products and intricate looms. What an extraordinary and romantic world they constitu!

Testimonials
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
