I grew up with silk. All Thai women do. I love silk. It is a natural fiber, and it is beautiful. Silk production is really a cottage industry in rural areas after harvest. When I tried to find something for my sister to do while she stays home and takes care of our mother, I thought of us together bringing Thai silk here and creating this wonderful online silk store. Not only can I help my sister, I can create jobs for women in Thailand, and I can start a business I enjoy. In Thailand, after the rice harvest, women start hand-weaving silk. Silk comes from the cocoon of the silk worm. The women in the villages raise silk worms and feed them mulberries three times a day for 20 days before they turn into butterflies. The north, northeast, and central areas are key in this cottage industry.
