We are trying to create good quality, affordable silk products to improve our lives. Our focus is silk pillowcase, silk scarf, silk tie, and other clothing products/accessories.
So why is silk considered the most luxurious fabric? Silk is incredibly smooth and feels great on the skin. It is a naturally hypoallergenic fabric and resists dust, fungus, mold, and many other allergens. This is the longest-lasting natural fabric.
Silk not only can be used to make cloth but also is used for upholstery, wall coverings, rugs, bedding, and wall hangings. What’s more, silk is used in a variety of commercial and industrial applications, including parachutes, bicycle tires, comforter filling, and artillery gunpowder bags. Silk Products improve our life quality.

Legend of Silk
Legend has it that the process for making silk cloth was first invented by the wife of the Yellow Emperor, Leizu, around the year 2696 BC. The idea for silk first came to Leizu while she was having tea in the imperial gardens. A cocoon fell into her tea and unraveled. She noticed that the cocoon was actually made from a long thread that was both strong and soft.
Leizu then discovered how to combine the silk fibers into a thread. She also invented the silk loom that combined the threads into a soft cloth. Soon Leizu had a forest of mulberry trees for the silkworms to feed on and taught the rest of China how to make silk.
