Silk fabric from Soufli

Soufli silk is silk produced in the town of Soufli in Northern Greece. It is unique in glow, texture and quality.

The story begins around 554 AD when two monks returning from China brought back with them silk tree seeds hidden inside their hollow wooden canes. The first town in the western world to receive this unique seed was Soufli, then part of the Byzantine Emprire.
