When did we first start trading silk?

    No one could tell you the answer to this question exactly. But the silk trade routes were established well over 2000 years ago. According to Wikipedia.org, the trade of silk began (on the official books of history) during the Han Dynasty,in the region now known as China, in about 200 BC. I bet is likely that silk was first traded sometime well before then as historians claim that the material was first developed as early as 3500 BC.  So perhaps silk has been traded for more than 4000 – 5000 years! Who knows? Who cares? (No offense, but I wonder: What exactly does this have to do with anything green-related? / the environment?    You’re not just trying to get some poor sap like me to do your homework for you; are you, Shellbyknapp?
