The story of this extraordinary cloth started somewhere across the world in the hands of a gifted artist. From there it was picked with care as a mere blueprint and sent directly to a small town in northern Greece, called Soufli, where silk is grown from natural silkworm cocoons since antiquity. After being gently twill-woven, printed, cut, washed and ironed, it was sent to one of the surrounding villages, to the home of a local seamstress who sewed it traditionally by hand. Finally, after being collected from there it was sent back to us, to be carefully laid in this container, accompanied by this very note, so that you will know its origin, its journey, and its substance.
