Baronic silk

Kami menamakannya atau menyebutnya dengan nama “sutra baron atau songket sutra baron”.
Mengapa demikian, karena selama proses pembuatannya memerlukan waktu yang cukup lama, mulai dari proses pengolahan benang sutranya untuk di jadikan lusi., karena benang sutra tidak bisa langsung kita gunakan sebagai lusi, sebab perlu di godok (rebus) terdahulu untuk menghilangkan lilin yang masih ada di benang sutra tersebut bekas atau sisa dari ulat sutra. 84 more words
