Vintage Silk Worm Sericulture Nets

Vintage Japanese Silk Worm growing Nets.

These unusual nets are used in the feeding and growing process of the Bombyx mori or domestic silk moth caterpillar.

The process of raising silkworms and unwinding their cocoons is called sericulture. Silkworms have to be carefully taken care of: they need to be fed regularly and maintained in a carefully controlled environment. It is a labour-intensive industry, The main raw materials other than the silkworms themselves are the leaves from mulberry trees. A hundred kilograms of mulberry leaves yield just 25 silkworm cocoons.

These nets are ideal as the Silkworms and the Mulberry leaves can be laid on top whilst all of the waste will fall through the net, as the quality of silk is often determined by the quality of care the silkworms receive.
