History of the Hoi An Silk Village

Once the “silk hub” of Quang Nam Province, the Hoi An silk industry employed thousands of Quang Nam residents and sent its products across the “silk sea road” to Europe and Asia. The Hoi An Silk Village was once home to dozens of artisanal craftsmen that worked in the production, manufacturing and weaving of silk products using solely silkworms. However, the Village became unprofitable and closed almost 100 years ago because of competition and declining interest in artisanal silk products. The Hoi An Silk Village seeks to revive this part of Hoi An’s history by working with the tourism industry and promoting the artisanal process and silk products of the ancient village
