One of the most exciting cultural visits we made in Crete was when we visited a silk weaving production facility. They were completely self sufficient from the beginning to end of the silk making and weaving process and have volunteers working with them year round from different schools around the world.

Pictured above is the silk worm feeding step, which was amazing to listen to and see take place. These silk worms provide the silk necessary to make garments, which they sell at different markets around the country. 

It was beautiful to see the women continue this process of weaving as it holds within it a large history of Greek culture and preserves a classic system within the Greek household.
