I thought you would like to see this - silk production and use as it has been done in Dalmatia (and many other places on the Mediterranean) since the 15th century. The photos were taken in Konavle, a beautiful valley in the hinterland of Dubrovnik, where women again grow silk worms on mulberry leaves and spin the fine threads to make their fine embroidery. I was lucky to visit this May, when I could see the worms, the moths and the cocoons. Here is more about it: http://www.inyourpocket.com/croatia/dubrovnik/Silk-Production-in-Konavle_72514f
Hope you enjoy it, love,

Mary Kaiser's sister-in-law, Sanja, wrote to Mary recently and sent pictures from her trip to the Konavle region, in Croatia this past May. Thanks, Mary, for sharing Sanja's note and photographs with us.
