Yodgorlik Silk Factory, Margilon

A short Marshutka ride from Fergana is this little factory in Margilon that produces silk textiles. There, we were ushered around by a 15 year old boy who adamantly described the silk making process.

After boiling the cocoons in water, the thread is unravelled, dyed and spun into spools. It is then hand-woven into fabric by a collective of 40 women.

The dyeing process.
