Philippines aims to revive Mindanao silk industry
Feb '17
The department of trade and industry (DTI) in Bukidnon, Philippines has joined the technology mission organised by Northern Mindanao Technical Working Group (TWG), in an attempt to revitalise the Mindanao silk industry. The activity aims to learn more about the potentials of the industry and study the technologies needed to improve productivity.

The partnership will also explore the possibility of forging a partnership between different agencies in Northern Mindanao, and leading silk manufacturers in the country.

The TWG team visited the sericulture project of the Organisation for Industrial, Spiritual and Cultural Advancement (OISCA) Bago Training Centre, which within its 26-hectare farmland produces 1.5 tons of silk yarn annually, accounting for 90 per cent of the country’s total production.

Around 80 per cent of its silk products are sold to weavers in Aklan, and the remaining 20 percent to Manila based traders.

Philippine fashion designer Melody Parrel-Pimentel, along with other key government agencies too are pushing for the revival of Mindanao silk. (AR)
