Silk’s rich history originates in China, where silk was harvested from the cocoon of the Bombyx mori silkworm. This silk was first reserved for Chinese royalty and for nearly 3,000 years, the Chinese kept its secret safe from the rest of the world. Eventually, news of this exotic luxury fabric spread worldwide and its popularity continues today. The Source One Silk/Silky collection features both 100% silk designs, as well as blended fabrics with realistic silk looks. In addition, all products in this collection are finished with the eco-friendly Lurotex® Protector, which prevents oil or water-based splashes from penetrating and staining the material. Lurotex and all dyeing, printing, laminating, finishing, etc. are totally water-based.
