A good is defined as precious as it is rare. Nowadays, the silk production accounts for the 0.2% of the world’s usage of textile fibers. In fact, already in ancient Rome silk was exchanged at the same value gold was. The charm and elegance of this fiber is the result of the union between man and nature since 5000 years.
During this length of time, the techniques regarding the processing and selection of the worm races have been refined. Today, the market offers a wide range of silk: from the most regular and refined Mulberry silk to the Tussah silk, or wild silk, obtained by the cocoons of dozens of wild species of Lepidoptera. The evolution’s outcome is a unique product, which has always been imitated, thus, it has been kept as a treasure in order to make the most precious fabrics.
