Rug Weaving Factory

Chinese Industrial Empire

26. Rug-weaving Factory

We visited a rug-weaving factory. This lady works on making a medium-sized silk rug. The lady passes the shuttle through the threads by hand. A lever reverses the threads for the next pass. We bought a silk rug for $12 US. The original price was $50. As she progresses she moves the pegs holding her seat and sits higher.
