Field Trip to “Rumah Sutra” (Silk House)

March 20, 2012


Silk Worm Larva. eating Mulberry leaves

We had a chance to visit Rumah Sutra at Desa Ciapus, Bogor, West Java.

It was very interesting, because we saw and learned the process of making silk, starting from visiting the mullberry farm, observed the silkworms, then watched how the machines process the cocoons and bring out the finished product of silk fabric.
