The best-known silk, Mulberry Silk, is obtained from the cocoons of the larvae of the Mulberry silk worm (moth), Bombyx mori. It feeds off the leaves of the Mulberry tree which gives the silk it’s name. It is a fabric that was first made in China and dates back to 3630BC! It was a fabric usually reserved for Emperors, but it soon became a popular choice for many around the world for it’s stylish and opulent feel.
