    cultivation began 5000 years ago. Silk production is known as

    sericulture.

    According to Confucius, it was in 2640 B.C. that the Chinese princess

    Xi Ling Shi was the first to reel a cocoon of silk which, legend also

    has it, had dropped into her cup of tea. From that historic moment,

    the Chinese discovered the life cycle of the silk worm and for the

    next 3000 years were to keep their monopoly of silk. Most silkworm

    farms today exist in Japan, India, the USSR, Korea and Brazil. Silk

    is still produced in smaller quantities in many other countries, and

    several developing countries are studying new sericultural projects.
