Europe was exposed to the incomparable delicacy of silk -- soft, sensuous and shimmering in its opulence -- via the " Silk Road" from China. Revolutionized with the invention of the silk loom in 1804, the weaving of increasingly complex designs was made possible. Exactingly printed to recreate the luminosity and look of classic era silk, this journal is dedicated to the beautiful fabrics of the Jacquard loom silk weaving tradition of France.
