Image description

During the first half of the 1st century CE, silk worm technology is thought to have reached the Han-Chinese dominated oasis of Khotan in the Tarim Basin - an oasis that is still a centre of silk production today. A Chinese princess given in marriage to a Khotan prince is said to have carried the eggs of silkworms to her new husband concealed in her hair.
