    Oh, how wonderful the story of silk making explained in a painting! This should be a national treasure! Thank you sharing this article. My new favorite ♥ After reading it, I don’t want to cut silk all that much and just want to use all of it if ever able to afford some.

      Hahaha, maybe we can start with raising silkworms. When I was a kid, I had raised them, but I didn’t know at the time how silk was born.😂
