Textile historians speculate that silk embroidery was introduced to the world via the silk road, the famous overland trade route that stretched from the eastern shores of the mediterranean, crossing persia and india before ending in peking. Various striking silk embroideries originated in the indian subcontinent, a region that historically hosted bustling bazaars, teeming with people and caravans from the middle east and beyond. These ancient bazaars were found all along the silk road and served as cross-cultural marketplaces for goods procured from agra all the way to peking. Hand-embroidered in resham silk by native artisans, with bold color palette and curvilinear motifs, our silk luxury duvet cover set are reproductions of authentic silk textiles from ancient india.
