WILD FLOWERS IN SILK

   

MISTRA ESTATES FLORA

Our silk scarves evoke the beauty of the Greek countryside. In the olive groves of Mistra Estates near Sparta (Southern Greece) grow wild flowers that are featured in beautifully designed silk scarves. These fine scarves are made in Soufli, Thrace (Northeastern Greece), famous for its silk industry. Thrace has preserved and developed its silk production since the sixth century A.D. (C.E.), when two Greek monks smuggled silk worms from China to Constantinople, capital of the Byzantine Empire.

Τα μεταξωτά μας μαντήλια σας φέρνουν την ομορφιά της ελληνικής γης. Τα αγριολούλουδα μέσα στους ελαιώνες του Μυστρά προβάλλονται σε υπέροχα σχεδιασμένα μεταξωτά μαντήλια. Η παραγωγή τους γίνεται στο Σουφλί (Θράκη), διάσημο για το μετάξι του. Στη Θράκη διατηρήθηκε και ανεπτύχθη η σηροτροφία από τον έκτο αιώνα μ.Χ. , όταν δύο Έλληνες μοναχοί έφεραν κρυφά μεταξοσκώληκες από την Κίνα στην Κωνσταντινούπολη.

It's a fine thing to walk
where the medows are grassy,
where light zephyr
blows the sweetest breeze....
