Interesting tour of the factory to understand how silk products are made. After the tour, you will be brought to a large store selling all kinds of sllk products. The price is rather expensive but the quality is good.

I do not know. I bought mine from a market stall at the tourist village of Tongli, a short bus ride from Suzhou. Very cheap and good quality. Use it every day.
