It is a beautiful and precious medium/heavy twill silk with a matte effect and a very soft and full hand. Newcatwill perfectly represents the current trend.
The legend narrates that silk was discovered by the beautiful Chinese empress Lei-Tsu. Some cocoons dropped in her bowl while she was drinking tea in a garden. Removing them, she saw the fine and longest strings of silk and by that, she had the genial intuition to use it as yarn. Its own incredible features make silk the elected material for ties.
