Discover how your silk scarf or shirt came into existence.

We'll go on a behind the scenes tour to see how silk is made. You’ll get unique insight into the different stages involved in the production of this luxurious fabric. From the growing of the castor plant to the breeding of the silkworms, spinning of yarn, weaving using traditional looms and finally the dyeing process of fabric. You’ll get your hands dirty as you try to dye your very own fabric. And the best part – you get to carry it home as a souvenir to remind you of this adventure-filled day.
