The history of Silk is a long fascinating journey through time and all around the world, from its first estimated appearance in human society in 27th century BC until today. Greece has a long tradition in the art of raising silkworms – sericulture- and weaving of silk. One town, in particular, had such wide production, that gained the name “City of Silk”. “Soufli”, is located in the Evros regional unit in north-east Greece. Sericulture flourished there and still remains a living tradition creating pure silk . It preserves its culture and history in special museums of silk and production on local silkmills, where we get our supplies from. Notably, it is a natural process, that requires only physical materials, mulberry leaves for food and one source of energy, sunlight, for the silkworms growth. It is, therefore, an environmentally harmless and non-polluting practice. What’s more to add, silk is one of the, most friendly, fabrics towards our skin with many benefits for our health attributed to it. The making procedure of our silk ties in Efstathia Collection Silk Line follows the same patterns being respectful to tradition and offering modern, elegant choices.
