History of Silk BHT271


According to Chinese tradition, the history of silk begins in the 27th century BC. Its use was confined to China until the Silk Road opened at some point during the latter half of the first millennium BC. China maintained its virtual monopoly over silk for another thousand years. Not confined to clothing, Chinese silk was also used for a number of other applications, including writing, and the color of silk worn was an important indicator of social class during the Tang Dynasty.
