Activity of the affiliated group of silk yarn threads and the silk industry

Japan has only a few production of silkworm cocoons and yarn threads these days and it is feared that they will be extinct. To preserve and develop silk yarn threads and the silk industry in Japan, the people involved in the production and sales of silk products form a group and work together. With the people involved in the production of cocoons, yarn threads, silk fabrics, and in the distribution such as a dealer and retail store, we cooperate with each other and aim at making attractive products made from the authentic Japanese silk.

The Authentic Japanese Silk Mark

純国宝絹マーク

The authentic Japanese silk mark tells consumers that the silk products with this mark are made from only Japanese silkworm cocoons and yarn threads. It also shows the production history of the silk products, for example, who is in charge of producing silkworm cocoons, filature, weaving, dying and so on.
