Sericulture and silk craftsmanship

Sericulture and silk craftsmanship of China, centered in Zhejiang and Jiangsu provinces near Shanghai municipality and Chengdu in Sichuan province, reflect a traditional handicraft with a long history.

Silk-making, traditionally an important role for women in the economy of rural regions, involves planting mulberry trees, raising silkworms, unreeling silk, making thread, and designing and weaving fabric.

Sericulture and silk craftsmanship of China were inscribed on UNESCO's list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2009. The craft can be seen in the material used for hanfu.
