Silk is a natural protein fiber, some forms of which can be woven into textiles. The protein fiber of silk is composed mainly of fibroin and is produced by certain insect larvae to form cocoons. The best–known silk is obtained from the cocoons of the larvae of the mulberry silkworm Bombyx mori reared in captivity (sericulture). The shimmering appearance of silk is due to the triangular prism–like structure of the silk fiber, which allows silk cloth to refract incoming light at different angles, thus producing different colors. Silk fabric has a history that dates back to ancient China. In fact, the earliest examples of silk fabric have been found in tombs that date back to the Han Dynasty (206 BC – 220 AD). Since then, silk embroidered collection has been an important part of Chinese culture and has been used in a variety of garments, including robes, shirts, pants, and even armor. While silk was originally exclusive to China, it eventually made its way to the West, where it quickly became a coveted fabric. In fact, during the Middle Ages, silk was so valuable that it was often used as a form of currency. Today, silk is still prized for its beauty and wide range of silk embroidered collection available in Buraqstore.
