Resource Overview History

Legend has it that silk was discovered by Leizu, queen to the Yellow Emperor of China when a moth pupa accidentally dropped into a cup of hot tea that she was having. From that time on, the Chinese created silk from the pupae of the moth bombyx mori, whose fibers can be unwound to form threads for weaving. Comfortable and resilient, silk bought China much wealth and was the one reason for the existence of the Silk Road until the Late Middle Ages when the Romans managed to smuggle silkworm moths into Greece.
