According to Chinese legend, silk was discovered in 3,000 BC by Lady His-Ling-Shi, wife of Emperor Huang Ti, when a silkworm cocoon accidentally dropped into her hot tea. Fine threads from the cocoon unraveled in the hot water and silk was discovered. Initially, silk was only used for the emperor and highest of dignitaries. Eventually noble and rich Roman and Greek families sought out this rare textile and the Silk Road to Europe was created to support the commerce. For centuries, silk was as valuable as gold and often used as currency in international trade.
