What is Golden Silk?

The history of sericulture dates back over 5,000 years and raises silkworms for their delicate cocoons. Seri is the Latin word for silk and where Seri Couture derives its name—transforming heritage sericulture into high fashion. 

Today, nearly all commercial silk produced is from a single breed of white silkworm. Bred for profit rather than beauty, white silk has lost its strength and luster. 

In Cambodia, a small group of farmers still raise the Golden Silkworm, a breed dating back to the Angkor Empire. Golden Silk remains extremely rare. It is truly the queen of all silks, unparalleled in strength and shine.

At Seri Couture, we use only Cambodian Golden Silk, bringing you an authentic, sustainable luxury gown.
