I Visited this silk factory and store with a group,in Shanghai,we saw cocoons being unravels to make silk thread and even helped open out a cocoon to help make a comforter, I bought pillows filled with silk and a comforter. They even shipped them back to the States for me. the silk covers and pillow cases were wrapped in the comforter. Everyone was so nice, polite, helpful, and spoke English. I bought scarves and a silk shirt in their store, they had a wonderful selection of many silk clothes and bedding. You should definitely visit this silk factory and store if you are in Shanghai!

We had a tour of the Tian Hou Silk Factory in Shanghai. We were educated about the silk making process. There is a shop where various silk products are sold such as blouses, bedsheets and blankets…etc. The Factory is fine but nothing special. One of our group ladies informed us that the sold items were satin NOT silk. SEE photos.

Had amazing time at this Silk Factory, watching the silk worms working, then seeing the product being handled from start to finish. What a place to learn the history of Silk. Loved seeing what it had been made into and brought home 2 silk pillows which are amazing to sleep on.

I purchased one quilt which is made of silk. The Chinese silk is definitely very good as well as costly. Though I have given the date as Nov 2018 but it was much before that. Since no option is there I gave that date.

We were given a short tour and talk describeing the silk road ,and the process of makeing silk into garments and material. Well presented with display boards in English,then a shop,with material,and mainly bedding,its fireproof,nicely displayed. We were suprised that so many tourist actually bought products here,as they are expensive,but we already knew the price in the uk,these were the real deal,quality from its source. Last seasons colours on bedding was even cheaper. All packed carefully and useing the suckdown method of packing very compact for takeing home.
