Our Silk Road scarf features a design rooted in the ancient network of silk

trade routes. The Silk Road began from the East to the West of the Asian

continent. It played a primary role in the development of China and its

civilization as well as the cultures of countries as far as the

Mediterranean Sea. This passage was propagated by Zhang Qian, in 206 BC,

during the Western Han Dynasty and rapidly grew into the Eastern Han Dynasty

and Tang Dynasty, ending in 1368 AD. It was given the name ‘Silk Road’ by

German geographer Ferdinand von Richthofen because silk was the major trade

product that traversed along it. Our Silk King scarf embraces the different

cultures who traveled down that road. Through combining a variety of ethnic

patterns that are representational of various silk cultures, we embrace the

historical importance of the Silk Road for China.
