The Legend

The inspiration for the name SilkThread® is the Greek myth of Theseus and the Minotaur in the labyrinth:

Theseus was given a silk thread by Ariadne, the daughter of King Minos of Crete. He unravelled the silk thread as he went into the labyrinth, killed the Minotaur and – using the thread – he managed to retrace his way out.

We’re not suggesting anyone is the Minotaur, but the labyrinth of O Licence compliance is complex and a little navigational help can be useful!
