1/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web
Feel the appeal of silk at Shanghai Jiangnan Silk Museum. Pass the antique gate to watch the whole process of silk production. Observe silkworms eating leaves and closing into cocoons: one of these tiny pods can provide over 1,000 m (3,280 ft) of silk thread. Get involved in thread-pulling to experience the technique of silk processing. Talk with factory workers to understand the intriguing process behind clothes, bed linens, and other objects made here. Prepare for a bit of pressure to buy from the onsite store, and check the materials before you do to ensure they're pure silk.
