Half Day Hoi An Silk Village From Hotel Inside Hoi An City Only: Start the tour in an ancient Quang Nam house that now hosts our collection of 100 Ao Dai (dresses) and costumes from Vietnam's 54 different ethnic groups. We'll walk through the mulberry garden and describe the rich history that silk has had in Vietnamese culture and discuss the various species of mulberry used in Vietnam.
We will also tour the silkworm breeding house, providing an in-depth look into the lives of silkworms. From there, we'll show you how silkworm cocoons are unravelled to become the silk thread used in clothing. After you learn about the actual creation of silk threads, you will be able to watch Champa women using ancient looms to make silk textiles.
Finally, the tour will end with a hands-on demonstration of how to decipher fake versus real silk and a visit to our showroom where our expert tailors can help design a custom suit or dress for you. Relax in the lush mulberry garden and enjoy a special local meal before returning to the hotel.
