Today we will touch on the problem of climate change and with it, changes in us.
It sounds kind of loud, but that’s what touched me yesterday. What exactly?
In recent years, we have seen how the climate is changing. It is becoming hotter in southern countries, rivers are drying up in Europe and some countries are experiencing water shortages. These changes are changing us, society and production. Thus, classical production is being replaced by modern, which is not requires ancient manufacturing methods. We are changing, although we hardly notice it. But we are changing.

Why have we changed? Water shortages, the concentration of some hydrogen and the struggle to reduce emissions are leading to the closure of many old industries and the transition to newer methods and manufacturing processes.So, due to changes and reductions, livestock breeding suffered, and many food growing industries suffered. Changes also affected the textile industry,industry for the production of raw materials and even influenced their manufacturing processes. Today we are talking about silk production. Southeast Asia is traditionally famous for this.

How have the changes affected this region? It’s simply catastrophic. It’s scary to imagine that silk production, in its traditional form, is experiencing huge problems and there are only two factories left in Japan for growing and manufacturing natural silk.

And these are two small factories that use the traditional technology of growing a cocoon, using only natural materials that have been used since the original production. Now these factories are on the verge of dying, because it is very difficult for them to compete with artificially created silk, which may be larger and cheaper, but more industrialized.

This film is unique because it shows the ancient way of making silk.
Therefore, this film is interesting to me and I am happy to show it to you.
