Using Silk In Mattresses
Silk is a natural protein fibre, some forms of which can be woven into textiles. For centuries, silk has had a reputation as a luxurious and sumptuous fabric that is associated with wealth and success.
The Chinese have used silk since the 27th century BC and is one of the oldest fibres known to man. In the Roman Empire, silk was literally worth its weight in gold.
The unique production process adds to the mystery and exclusiveness of the fabric. It takes 5500 silkworms to produce one kilogram of raw silk. The glistening appearance of silk is due to its triangular prism-like structure, which allows silk fabric to refract incoming light at different angles, therefore producing different colours.
