Interesting but not worth the time
May 2019
We visited this location as part of our tour. It was interesting to see the silkworms and how the cocoons are cleaned and stretched, but we spent way too much time in the showroom. I found the products quite expensive and was really unsure as to the quality. If it was my choice I would have given this visit a miss. There are too many other interesting spots in Shanghai.

Poor Quality of Product
Jun 2018 • Couples
Visited here on an otherwise fantastic tour of China in June 18. We were shown through the factory and the process of silk production which was very interesting.

Decided to buy some product including Silk Doona,cover, two sheets and two pillow cases. All up cost was RMB 3,550 or about $780 AUD. The sheets were unable to be used after 1 week as they completely balled up. I sent an email to complain but they said the silk would sort out but that is not the case. Sent another email requesting compensation and have not received a reply.
Don't buy this product as even slightly rough skin will ruin it catching every time you move, similar to a ladder in a stocking.

Learning History of China’s Silk Production
Sep 2017 • Friends
Excellent experience learning the history of China's silk and observing the process of silk production from nibbling silk worms to the final product in this government-owned business. The showroom was attractively appointed, and staff were helpful in displaying purchase choices. We did make a purchase, reasonably priced for the product. It was shrink-wrapped and mailed at no cost to our last hotel in China before flying home to the U.S. We were able to easily pack our purchase in our suitcase for our return.
