Perhaps we missed something but all we could see were the silk shops near the main street. The name is misleading as it isn't a village at all and was just in Hanoi.
There was construction on the street which I guess hid the looms and silkworm workshop. The city should put up a map near the 'welcome to Silk vilalge' sign to define some kind of walking path.
