Why Do People Love Printed Silk Fabrics?
Silk is a simply beautiful and luxurious fabric, there is nothing like it.
The process for manufacturing silk might not put you in mind of a stunning end product – it is a natural fabric made from the larvae silkworm.
The resultant fabric is soft to the touch, lustrous, it speaks of luxury.
In a world of ever more automation, people value a natural product that takes some effort to produce, it is perhaps reassuring that the best things can still come from nature.
Silk is also hypoallergenic and, despite being lightweight is very strong – it is the strongest of natural fibres.
