According to the chairman of the Asia Silk Alliance, Dilip Barooah, the Vietnam-Asia silk culture festival has provided a great opportunity for silk producers, designers, exporters and importers, intermediaries, and government agencies related to silk promotion to share experiences for the future development of the silk trade.
“The festival also opens up chances for silk centres in Asia and the world by building up connections in production and export,” he said. He added that the Vietnam-Asia silk festival was held with an aim of promoting the silk trades of Cambodia, China, Japan, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam.
Chairman of Kyoto Silk Association Takao Watanabe said he hoped the silk trade would develop quickly in the coming years to become the prosperous industry that was seen over 500 years ago.
The two-day festival witnessed a fashion show, a seminar on silk history and development with presentations and discussions on improving silk yield, silk branding and marketing, silk export development, and silk standards, certification and regulations.
The festival also includes displays from elegant French fashion designers, Myanmar silk with special patterns, Cashmere silk from India, Nanchong Yinhai silk and Hangzhou Jiahe silk textiles from China, and silks from Nishijin, Japan. (NA)
