Silk is a natural protein fiber obtained from the cocoons of the silkworm larvae. Originating in Ancient China thousands of years ago, silk was expensive to produce and was initially reserved for the personal use of royalty and for gifts to dignitaries. With the advancement of technology, artificial silk has been developed to resemble silk but costs less to produce. Rayon, bamboo and even nylon are good substitutes for silk.
