In Chang'an,the imperial family had west and east weaving studios,and the grand ministers too had their own workshops at home.For example,there were 700 household slaves engaged in weaving at the home of a principal court official named Zhang Anshi.Each family was a weaving unit,too,where women weaved from dawn to dusk,reflecting the traditional division of labor whereby “the man works in the fields while the woman sits at the 100m.”With the participation of all women,the output of silk reached a high level in the Han Dynasty China travel service.
The Silk Road had emerged after Zhang Qian's second mission and the submission of the Western Regions to Han Emperor Wu.Zhang Qian's diplomatic mission to the Western Region had achieved splendid results. Those countries in those regions showed great enthusiasm for the visits of Han envoys and sent missions back to China China shopping, carrying locally produced specialties and gifts. Silk was one of the main commodities transported from Chang'an to the West, and it was favored by the Westerners.
Since the opening of the Silk Road China Holidays, more and more silk fabrics had been transported to Parthia. Nothing fascinated the Romans as much as silk. Because of its complex manufacturing process and the Parthian monopoly, silk cost as much as gold in Rome. According to Western historians, silk was as popular in London in the 2nd century in China.
