Objects created from silk textile fibers, such as a silk flag, are some of the most beautiful textiles created.  Silk comes from the strong and shiny cocoon of silkworms, which are the larva of a moth known as Bombyx mori. These silkworms are native to Asia and silk production is very common in China, Japan, Italy, and other countries. However, the Bombyx mori moth has become so domesticated that it is now only found in captivity. These cocoons require a great deal of care and processing in order to create the silk product which is why silk is one of the most expensive fibers around.

The phrase silk flag , as used in the book Ragtime, was a gift Father gave to Peary as he left early from his expedition stationed in Cape, Columbia. The expedition was to make a dash across the sea ice, but Father was having so much trouble with pieces of his body freezing that he had to turn back within days of reaching their goal. Father owned a fireworks and American novelty store and manufactured the eloquent flag for the occasion. The flag was pure silk,large however folded into the size of a handkerchief, and once Peary and the group reached their destination, Peary posed Henson and the Esquimos in front of it for a picture.
