Around 5,000 years ago, Chinese Empress Leizu discovered silk when she accidentally found a worm producing a fine thread. Enchanted by the silk, people domesticated the worms, which were eventually unable to live and grow by themselves. The worms eat mulberry leaves day and night, before entering the pupal stage. As pupae, they produce fine threads that wrap around their vulnerable bodies. Their work introduced us to the precious nature of the beautiful silk and inspires us to make clothes that are unique and unexpected.
