  • Terrific opportunity to watch nearly every step of silk weaving, and lotus silk production. "Venice" of Myanmar, as all access is by boat and there are no sidewalks in the village (but several bridges...  more »
  • We had the opportunity to get to know the Lotus fiber processing and have experienced the following for this: at the end of the rainy season, when the water level is highest, the stems of lotus flowers and leaves are harvested as they then reach the maximum length. Stalks measured the ends of two to three meters about a hand-width from the end are addressed, snapped off and then withdrawn, so that the maximum five micro metres strong fibers are exposed. Piece by piece the entire bounding stem is removed in another colored sections. The fibers of three to five stems are twisted. As long as they are still sleek, they are spun and kept moist during this time by repeated watering. The yarn with rice starch is strengthened and repeatedly wetted at the hand loom before weaving. As it breaks in a dry condition, are processed within 24 hours of harvest. A person spins the day between 80 and 100 grams of yarn, about 10,000 stems and a week are needed for one metre of fabric. Lotus silk is produced exclusively by members of the Intha people who settled around the Inle Lake. In the early 1960s first arose the idea to use the Lotus plant fibers for textiles. About 500 Seidenweberinnen are now working on Inle Lake, is her day doing ~ a dollar.
