WHILE COCOONS ARE SPUN

There are still families who continue traditional silk farming. Every spring, the silk producers in the village of Ihsaniye in Bursa are in a hurry. Their daily life turns almost upside-down within a period of about two months. With the coming of spring, the bedrooms, even the guest rooms are emptied and allocated for silk farming. Special terraces in the rooms and suspending berths are made ready. A heating stove is installed in every room against a possible cold weather. Thick clothes are stretched across the windows, as silk seeds do not like much light. Mulberry leaves are collected and chopped up for the feeding period. Knowing that one pack of seed will consume 500 kg of mulberry leaves, increases the hurry. This documentary shows the the villagers’ hurries lasting for about two months, the production stages as well as the Koza Han, which is known as the center of cocoon trade in the past.
