Silk Historically, SILK has formed the sustainable basis of the grassroots economy of the People's Republic of China for over 5,000 years. Silk, the Queen of Textiles, has fascinated mankind for centuries, spreading its influence globally along the Old silk Road.

Regionally sericulture was also practiced in Trinidad until Methane technology took precedence. Sericulture is also practiced on a very small scale in Guyana while peace silk is reared in the Dominican Republic by an Origon based cooperative. Barbados joined 200 plus years ago. This tactile textile which has financed wars and influenced peace, provides a baseline for an international high standard of living, is regarded as an excellent alternative to agro-sustainability and provides jobs and quality lifestyle enhancements.

In Barbados, the philanthropist Dr. Joshua Steele introduced sericulture as an early agrodiversity and exported vegetable silk to England in the late 1700's. In the interest of identifying jobs for older rural woman and contributing to poverty alleviation efforts, women entrepreneurs in Barbados sought to find a vehicle to inform and enhance the traditional cottage industries of Barbados.
