After many research in books of our collection about silk trade or silk road, we did’nt find anything precisely about silk envelopes or silk wrappers.
Nevertheless you may consult these selected resources and ask them your question. They are more specialized than us on this subject :
> Map on the Silk road and trade between Arab and Muslim countries :
> The Dutch East India Company :
> Textiles Museum / Musée des tissus, Lyon (France)
You could also ask your question to the British Library :
