In Suzhou city where they have the silk factories, do you think we can arrange a tour for our child to understand the silk making?
Silk factories in Suzhou are great, they will show you from the beginning to the end, i.e. from silk worm cocoon until the finished beautiful silks made into dresses, carpets, embroideries, etc. it was really fun to watch.
Here are some pictures from our visit and you can follow the process:
Our visit was arranged through our tour company, I'm sure you can arrange one through your hotel/hostel, they should be able to point you in the right direction.
