"SOFT GOLD" LOVED BY ROYALS
A Shinning Debut of Silk
The production of silk originated in Neolithic China within the Yangshao culture (4th millennium BCE). Due to the precious characteristics of production and technology, silk had been loved by the royal family and aristocrats and had the symbol of nobility. And Suzhou, also known as silk city, became an exclusive manufacture city where supplied the royal and top-classic silk products.
Since 300 AD, these exquisite silk products had also been gradually spreaded to other countries of the world and were loved by various royal families. For example, when Julius Caesar (100-44 BC), the legendary Roman general and a contemporary of Crassus, turned up at a theater draped in splendid Chinese silk, the would-be autocrat caused a big stir. In AD 1587 (the fifteenth year of Wanli), along with the development of the "Maritime Silk Road", silk products from Suzhou, China continued to be loved by European royals and nobles.
The longing for the luminous fabric was such that silk is considered to be a peerless luxury and noble, fascinated by the royal family and aristocrats, known as "soft gold".
