Natural silk is the name of a secretion released by a kind of worm at a particular point of time. Experts use this secretion for making silk thread and then cloth from this yarn. It is knows as silk textile industry.
Silkworm is hatched on the mulberry leaves. Natural silk is easy to obtain from the areas which have suitable climate conditions for the growth of the mulberry trees.

For producing one pound of silk, the silkworm eats hundred kilograms of mulberry leaves. The silkworm prepares silk within thirty to forty days. Silkworms grow up mainly in the climate of China and Japan. In 1884, a French scientist invented a synthetic silk known as Rayon which brought about a revolution in the silk industry.
