Silk is a luxurious fabric that has been popular in China since the 27th century B.C., when it was worn only by the emperor and his family. It is one of the oldest textiles available, and it is synonymous with luxury and elegance. The fabric is made from the silkworm's cocoon, and although delicate, silk is washable using the proper care and techniques.
