A silkworms journey

From just a dot on the cloth to a beautiful, fine string of silk - journey of the silkworm is long and risky, depending on so many uncertain natural and human factors. But the result is breathtaking - fine threads of silk, as a reward for the women of Konavle who guarded silkworms in their chest, keeping them warm and safe, feeding them, looking after their and their own future. This is a story of survival of the people, mulberry trees and silkworms, of preserving natural and cultural heritage, a story still being told, of the silk still being produced, loved and admired.
