Visit to a Silk Workshop

We went to the Silk Farm of Puok.  We saw aspects of the whole process. Silk worms eating leaves, harvesting silk from cocoons, dying the silk, winding it on reels, various aspects of weaving, and then the shop where you could buy silk goods. This was also a school where women were learning the trade.
