Fold and edit the origin of this section of silk

In the prehistoric era around 5000 years ago, the dawn of silk had appeared in the Yellow River Basin. By the Shang and Zhou dynasties, silk had been relatively developed. With the great economic development in the Warring States, Qin and Han Dynasties, silk production reached a peak. In 126 BC, under the policy of Emperor Wu of the Han Dynasty, a large number of Chinese silk were transported westward through the "Silk Road". From the Wei, Jin and Northern Dynasties to the Tang Dynasty, great changes have taken place in Chinese silk. On the one hand, it is consistent and compromises the traditional heritage, on the other hand, it is compatible with the advantages of foreign technology and patterns. In the song and Yuan Dynasties, with the high development of ancient science and technology, the great development of silk production technology was promoted, the variety and style were innovated, and the focus of silk production was transferred from the Yellow River basin to the south of the Yangtze River; By the Ming and Qing Dynasties, the area south of the Yangtze River, Suzhou and Hangzhou had become the most important silk producing area, developed a number of typical professional silk towns, and official weaving was becoming more and more mature. At this time, China's silk developed to the most active period. Since 1804, China's silk industry began to move towards modernization. After the founding of the people's Republic of China, China's silk has developed rapidly, a relatively complete silk industry system has been established, and silk products have been sold to more than 100 countries and regions all over the world. Under the new situation of reform and opening up, China's ancient silk is glowing with new youth and moving towards a brilliant future.
