Silk Weaving in Amurapura

On day 8, we saw how colorful silk fabrics are assembled one thread at a time at Thein Nyo Silk Weaving. The very detailed work is slow and repetitious, taking up to a month or more to finish a single piece of fabric. Workers are paid by the piece so sisters sometimes team up to finish the work faster.

The fished products were just beautiful – an irresistible spending opportunity for Kelly.
