    Silk craft villages have dotted Vietnam for hundreds of years. They make silk by hand in a tedious 30-step process. Craftspeople feed the silkworms every four hours so they spin brilliantly yellow cocoons. And turning those cocoons into silk is even more delicate work.
    In the 2010s, as cheaper, fake silk flooded the market and young textile workers moved to the big cities, this local craft started dying out. But one village turned things around, banding together into one cooperative called HanhSilk.
    We head to northern Vietnam to learn how Nam Cao village saved its big business of silk.

@Samuel Muldoon Of course they do it for the money. People work to earn money for a living. Novel concept! What are you even implying here? And almost all traditional crafts, and for that matter all manual crafts, are hard back-breaking work until you introduce modern tools and machinery, which Hanh in this video is trying to do.

Our family is in the silk industry for the past 25 years, and there are MANY unsung, unheard heroes within this industry alone. The traditional crafts industry in Vietnam is at large, are in need of apprentice to pass on the traditions, and silk is suffering even more due to it hard-labour nature. Not just that, because the delicate texture of silk, every other steps past weaving needs specialist. For example: you CANNOT dye silk the same way you dye cotton, a lot of hand measure and experiences needed to recreate the colors perfectly; Same thing with sewing silk into clothes, a normal fast-fashion factory seamstress WILL NOT have the skill/sense to work with silk; Same with printing on silk, embroidery on silk etc. You might think I am exaggerating, but our family been trying to train new seamstress and finding apprentice for our suppliers - the success is minimal. Especially after Covid-19, all exports stalled and a lot of the artists left the industry. My mother and her sisters tried their best to maintain the workflows and keep people, but they cannot save everyone in the industry. All I want to say is, it is a weakening craft, but there are many passionate people trying to carry on the legacy. Ms. Hanh here is one of them.

​@It’sOK2BWhite! End Anti-White Hate! Putting aside the fact that you use a biased American dictionary to define socialism, your own quoted definition betrays you. "Any of various theories or systems of social organization in which the means of producing and distributing goods is owned COLLECTIVELY or by a centralized government that often plans and controls the economy". Now let's look at the dictionary's definition for capitalism. "An economic system in which the means of production and distribution are PRIVATELY or corporately owned and development occurs through the accumulation and reinvestment of profits gained in a free market." The enterprise in the video is a cooperative owned collectively by its member by virtue of working in it, not by owning private capital, so it fits the definition of socialism. It is also common knowledge that the cooperative movement itself is part of the larger socialist and leftist movement, which takes many forms but on a whole emphasizes that economic activities should serve social goals and needs (hence "socialism"), not corporate profit. The capitalist's approach would not be setting up a cooperative since he won't receive any profit from his investment of capital (aside from maybe some loan interest). The capitalist would wait for the farmers to be desperate enough to sell their lands, buy them all up, make a corporate farm on those lands and employ those same farmers to work for him. The farmers, now without any means of production aside from their labor, would become wage slaves on their own former lands. That is the modus operandi of capitalists and corporate farms seen all too often around the world. "Communism resulted in the deaths of over 100 million people last century alone, mostly due to starvation". Let me guess, the Black Book of Communism? The book that three out of the four main contributors publicly disassociated themselves from parts of it and accused the remaining contributor of exaggeration and biased and sloppy scholarship? Let put aside the book's many flaws and take the number at face value. If you are going to count every deaths in communist countries as killed by communism, then how many have capitalism killed? Slavery was capitalist. The Irish famine was capitalist. The Bengal famine was capitalist. The Great Depression was very capitalist. Every person that dies because of inaccessible healthcare in a developed country is a person killed by capitalism. The US has one of the highest maternal death rates in the world, higher than even China and Russia. Incidentally the US also has one of the most capitalist health systems in the world. Not so pretty there eh? That said, I only replied because of your ridiculous comment about how a cooperative is a work of capitalism. Cooperatives, at least those who follow the Rochdale principles, are by definition and design socialist or leftist. In fact the first cooperatives were created to counteract capitalism's effects on the lives of the poor working class. Now that has been cleared up I won't reply any further to your comment. Have a good day.

Unironically, you have no idea what Socialism actually is. All you know is what you have been falsely taught by your radical Leftist teachers. So allow me to educate you properly. Socialism, by definition: “Any of various theories or systems of social organization in which the means of producing and distributing goods is owned collectively or by a centralized government that often plans and controls the economy. The stage in Marxist-Leninist theory intermediate between capitalism and communism, in which the means of production are collectively owned but a completely classless society has not yet been achieved. Any theory or system of social organization which would abolish, entirely or in great part, the individual effort and competition on which modern society rests” (The American Heritage Dictionary of the English language, 5th Edition). In pre-communist socialism, totalitarian government—NOT your friends and neighbors—owns and regulates the economy, and what it is you earn and receive. Government decides all, and redistributes as it sees fit, taking your profit, and giving it to freeloaders, thereby eliminating all private ownership, and with it the incentive to compete and gain. This is why socialism (which is communism) has failed everywhere it has ever been implemented. Communism resulted in the deaths of over 100 million people last century alone, mostly due to starvation. Capitalism, not socialism, is why you have your electronic device to spew your lies and ignorance on. The very foundation and success of western civilization is entirely owed to capitalism, not socialism. “Capitalism makes, socialism takes.”

@It’sOK2BWhite! End Anti-White Hate! Ironically this enterprise is a cooperative. In a cooperative it is the workers who have the power and own everything through collective ownership, and capital investment does not grant you any ownership. So it is exactly what socialism is about: workers' ownership of the means of production. And it runs straight against one of the core tenets of capitalism: decision making by virtue of ownership of capital. Too bad it is not your capitalism who saved the day.

This world is rapidly passing away and I hope that you repent and take time to change before all out disaster occurs! Belief in messiah alone is not enough to grant you salvation - Matthew 7:21-23, John 3:3, John 3:36 (ESV is the best translation for John 3:36) if you believed in Messiah you would be following His commands as best as you could. If you are not a follower of Messiah I would highly recommend becoming one. Call on the name of Jesus and pray for Him to intervene in your life - Revelation 3:20. Contemplate how the Roman Empire fulfilled the role of the beast from the sea in Revelation 13 over the course of 1260+ years. Revelation 17 confirms that the beast is in fact Rome. From this we can conclude that A) Jesus is the Son of God and can predict the future or make it happen, B) The world leaders/nations/governments etc have been conspiring together for the last 3000+ years going back to Babylon and before, C) History as we know it is fake. You don't really need to speculate once you start a relationship with God. Can't get a response from God? Fasting can help increase your perception and prayer can help initiate events. God will ignore you if your prayer does not align with His purpose (James 4:3) or if you are approaching Him when "unclean" (Isaiah 1:15, Isaiah 59:2, Micah 3:4). Stop eating food sacrificed to idols (McDonald's, Wendy's etc) stop glorifying yourself on social media or making other images of yourself (Second Commandment), stop gossiping about other people, stop watching obscene content etc. Have a blessed day!

Silkworms have to eat their way out of their cocoon and that hole means the cocoon can't be used for fabric production. Silkworm moths can't eat (they have no mouths) and only live for around a week... just long enough to mate, lay eggs and die.

@Andy J Can’t I grew up in Stockton, CA and there were mulberry trees on the grounds of my elementary school. My second grade teacher collected silkworms and mulberry leaves, put them in cardboard boxes. Our class saw the worms eat and eat for weeks, then spin themselves into cocoons. In early June, each student was invited to take cocoons home. I recall that the white ones were female and the gold ones were male. My uncle squashed the male cocoon by accident. He didn't know what it was. I was very upset. The female came out of her cocoon during the summer, but she had no one to mate with, so she passed away without reproducing.

Silkworms are so amazing . I raised some years ago... my father made me a miniature spindle and I used to put the coccoon into warm water and unwind the silk thread very easily without harming the pupae , and then I put them in a box with a light covering of tissues for warmth and they would hatch and begin the cycle again . No need to buy more silkworms every season ..and the coccoons were amazingly easy to unwind into one long unbroken thread because they didn't need to be cut open to remove the pupae . It was very efficient and also kind to the worms .

@Backyard Bunnies in the Country There are worm friendly silks that just use the cocoons after the silk worms have chewed out of them, the strands end up shorter and less usable, but still quite workable. As for these worms at least, the people who raise them eat them, it's a vital part of protein in their diet. Since humans can't eat mulberry leaves and the silk worms can, it's a way to feed the human animals who would be lacking protein otherwise.

These trades must not be lost. Fantastic and so traditional. Such a beautiful fabric. It deserves to have its monetary value stable and at a higher price than what is current. Fashion designers sell their end product for vast amounts of money so it's only fair this silk industry gets its equivalent.

As a kid I used to find silk worms on mulberry trees. I kept them in a shoe box putting in a few fresh leaves a day until they spin themselves into cocoons, and eventually moths.

What an Amazing laborious art. Silk is my most favorite material ever. My Dad designed & made wedding gowns so we have great appreciation for the finest of fabric. I'm also Happy to hear the pupae are not wasted. I saw another documentary that uses cocoons after the worms hatch into moths. Im sure this art is even more difficult. Thankyou to ALL preserving this Amazing luxurious material.

I like that they fry and eat the silkworms so they don't go to waste. I saw a video once on industrial silk farming and they just threw away the silk worm bodies. Instead of making food from them.

This world is rapidly passing away and I hope that you repent and take time to change before all out disaster occurs! Belief in messiah alone is not enough to grant you salvation - Matthew 7:21-23, John 3:3, John 3:36 (ESV is the best translation for John 3:36) if you believed in Messiah you would be following His commands as best as you could. If you are not a follower of Messiah I would highly recommend becoming one. Call on the name of Jesus and pray for Him to intervene in your life - Revelation 3:20. Contemplate how the Roman Empire fulfilled the role of the beast from the sea in Revelation 13 over the course of 1260+ years. Revelation 17 confirms that the beast is in fact Rome. From this we can conclude that A) Jesus is the Son of God and can predict the future or make it happen, B) The world leaders/nations/governments etc have been conspiring together for the last 3000+ years going back to Babylon and before, C) History as we know it is fake. You don't really need to speculate once you start a relationship with God. Can't get a response from God? Fasting can help increase your perception and prayer can help initiate events. God will ignore you if your prayer does not align with His purpose (James 4:3) or if you are approaching Him when "unclean" (Isaiah 1:15, Isaiah 59:2, Micah 3:4). Stop eating food sacrificed to idols (McDonald's, Wendy's etc) stop glorifying yourself on social media or making other images of yourself (Second Commandment), stop gossiping about other people, stop watching obscene content etc. Have a blessed day!

​@Alina Boiling them kills them almost instantly, which I assume hurts less than being slowly torn apart by a bird or another insect. Also keep in mind that this species has been domesticated to a point where they can not survive in the wild at all. At this point the species would quite literally go extinct if it wasn't for us farming them for silk.

Unfortunately they will still die because of human beings. And I bet that dying of hunger is much better than dying boiled alive. With all the other things that exist in this world that do not involve the exploitation and killing of non-human animals, people continue to piss them off😡

I bought a raw silk suit at Benetton in Ottawa in the 80s. It was 80% off. Nice suit. But my barracks buddy borrowed it and washed and dried it. It MIGHT have fit a 12 year old after that. I sweated him until payday before I told him I only paid 20% of the tag price... And I NEVER let him borrow anything else. It was a REALLY nice tan suit. For about a week. Very comfortable in summer heat.

6:15 I'm pretty sure sericulture and silkmaking originated more than 4000 years ago in China, during the Bronze Age. Traditional Chinese sources date to roughly 2700 BC, though archaeological evidence pushes that earlier by 1000 years. Silkmaking didn't enter Vietnam until the Han dynasty (roughly 2000 years ago).
