    Lovely garment - 12/12/2014
    By: from Columbus, Ohio, area

    This silk blouse has a luxurious feel next to the skin. The fabric is of good quality. The color (I selected black) is very intense. It is beautifully tailored (seams straight, buttonholes well-made, etc.). This is a blouse that could be worn with a suit for dress or with jeans for casual occasions. A multi-purpose garment!

    Fit is accurate and it feels like a dream. It is heavy enough so there is no show through.

    Good purchase - 11/29/2014
    By: from Valparaiso, IN

    This is my 2nd silk shirt purchase and they are a staple of my wardrobe. The shirt runs large. I usually wear a 10-12 and purchased a small at the advice of the sales lady. The fit is perfect and the body is long enough to be left out, but not too long when tucked in. The cuffs and collar are well tailored. The shirt does need pressing. Yes, I would recommend this product.

    Lovely Dress Shirt - 11/28/2014
    By: from Edmonton AC

    A great weight of silk, well tailored. It feels delightful on my skin and the collar goes well with a suit yet takes a sweater well, too. I am very pleased with this product.

    These silk shirts are the best value anywhere, they are very well made, and wash like a dream, go well with almost everything. I intend to eventually have it in every colour!

Silk: an ancient fabric, luxurious and versatile

The legendary origins of silk

The women's Everyday Silk Shirt from OrvisSilk is one of the oldest textiles known to man, but the methods of silk production remained a mystery in the West for centuries. Legend has it that a Chinese empress discovered silk in the 27th century BC while bathing; a cocoon dropped into her steaming bath water and unraveled. The empress had her handmaidens weave the strands together, and so the first silk thread was made.

A Fabric Worth It's Weight in Gold

Whatever the truth to that story, silk was solely a Chinese product and the silk workers kept the harvesting process a well-guarded secret for almost 3,000 years. In Roman times silk was a valuable commodity, literally worth its weight in gold. The ever-increasing demand for the lustrous material led to the creation of the Silk Road, a trade route that connected Asia with Europe, around 200 BC.

Luxurious Versatility

Silk fiber comes from the cocoon of the silk worm and it is extremely versatile. It’s comfortable to wear year-round, as it is naturally breathable and absorbs moisture. Silk takes dye very well, resulting in rich depth of color; it is lustrous, reflecting light for that telltale sheen. Surprisingly, silk batting, commonly used as an insulation layer in coats, provides 20% more warmth than goose down.

Strongest Natural Fiber on Earth?

Silk’s biggest secret, perhaps, might be its strength. Pressure tests have been done proving that a steel filament of the same diameter as a silk one will break before the silk does. Silk’s inherent elasticity insures that it can stretch up to 20% without damage. Silk, it turns out, may be the strongest natural fiber in the world.

Indulge Yourself with Silk: A Practical Luxury

Its strength, comfort and beauty make silk a practical luxury that's always a fabulous clothing value. Indulge yourself with something in silk today from Orvis!
