Silk Through the Ages: The Textile That Conquered Luxury (Hardcover)
Silk is not just a simple natural fiber--it represents something meaningful, universal, and perennial. This book tells the story of how the silk textile conquered the luxury world, and remained prestigious throughout the ages. Examining sociological research dating back to Antiquity, the Mongol Empire, and Ottoman Turks, this book demonstrates the value of globalization and the importance of diversity through the lens of silk as an enduring luxury textile.
