Silk has been produced in Vietnam since ancient times, and the locals still follow the tradition of producing this material. At the same time, many people use modern technologies in the production to make the processing of fabrics faster and quality better.

It is believed that the center of silk production in Vietnam is located in the province of Lam Dong.

Local climate is characterized by heavy rainfall and strong humidity, that is necessary for the production of this material.

How to distinguish natural silk

First of all, keep in mind that it is better to buy silk in well-known places, such as stores of silk factories, where the material is supplied directly from the factory. You can find these shops in many big cities, including Ho Chi Minh City, Phan Thiet and Nha Trang.

You can also find silk clothes and accessories in other city shops. But you need to be a little more careful there.

Keep in mind that natural silk is never sold for a song. For sure, the silk doesn’t cost much in Vietnam, but the prices are reasonable, and we advise you not to buy the cheapest product, since it can easily be synthetic.

Natural silk should be pleasant to the touch, it immediately turns your body temperature when touched. Good fabrics are characterized by a soft shine, the surface should shimmer in different shades. Such product will not fade over the years.

If you squeeze the silk fabric in your fist, and then let it go, the natural material gets slightly wrinkled, and a synthetic one is left with clear creases.

If possible, light the tip of the silk thread. It should smell of a burnt horn or feather. When burnt, the thread forms a small bump easy to pound with a hand.

Things made of natural silk will please you with its brilliance for a long time. They are breathable, dry quickly and are pleasant to the touch. You will definitely appreciate the quality of natural silk from Vietnam. And we wish you a pleasant shopping!
