Buy low priced Silk and learn its history

[ From: Eric Jin | Published: 2007-11-27 Views: 2973 | Booked times: 75 ]

Yuanlong Silk Plaza, located near the north gate of the Temple of Heaven, is Asia¡¯s largest center for silk products. This five-story Plaza offers a great variety of choices of mostly items made from silk, such as silk embroidery, handmade carpets, tapestries, satins, and brocades.

The highlight of a visit to the plaza is the spacious Yuanlong Silk Museum, the first of its kind in a shopping center. The museum traces the history and the manufacturing process of silk over time. You can find, among others, carefully prepared illustrations of the famous Silk Road, as well as the crucial role played by mulberry and moths involved in silk creation. Stay and enjoy weaving demonstrations by experienced silk-makers. I saw first-hand how they make hand-made carpets.

Most products here are available at wholesale prices. If you bargain well, you can get items for much cheaper than any other retail shops around the city. Some stall owners speak basic English.You can also use pen & paper to bargain.
