Ciapus Natural Silk House is an educational tourist attraction in Bogor district. In this place we are invited to watch the process of making silk cloth. Since the beginning. Starting from raising caterpillars to making ready-to-use silk fabric. Interested? After the workshop at the Sindangbarang Cultural Village, Indonesia Corners invited the participants to the following tourist destination, the Ciapus Natural Silk House. The locations of these two places are close together. Both of them have their addresses in Pasireurih village, Taman Sari District, Bogor. Getting off the green public transportation, I was immediately interested in seeing the external appearanceĀ depo 25 bonus 25
of the Ciapus Natural Silk House. At first glance, it looks like a villa, because there are houses and beautiful gardens. In fact, outside the front fence there is a large cactus with beautiful yellow flowers.

Raw Silk Room

The next room is the Raw Silk room, a room for spinning cocon into yarn. In this room the cocon is boiled to remove the sticky substance. Then the end of the cocon fiber is attached to the spinning machine. The pupae inside the cocon can be made into a side dish. So nothing is wasted. Although I felt sorry for the pupa who couldn’t become a butterfly. But even a butterfly doesn’t live long.

Silk threads that have been spun can be sold. The price is IDR 1,000,0000 to IDR 1,200,000 per kilogram. Pak Yan gave an example of a comparison of Indonesian and Thai silk thread products. The difference occurs because the type of silkworm used is not the same. White local product silk. Meanwhile, silk from Thailand is yellow. In the past, Rumah Sutera used to keep silkworms from Thailand, but now it doesn’t anymore.

Natural Silk Gallery

Silk end products and by-products are sold in galleries. Here you can see and buy plain, colorful silk fabrics or those that have been made with batik. The form is in the form of sarongs, scarves or ready-to-use products in the form of blouses and kebaya. For batik, these fabrics are sent to Cirebon. By-products are also provided here. There are mulberry leaf teas, key chains from the cocoons that the pupae have released, to the cocoons for masks.

Silkworm House

Silkworms of the type Bombyx mori are placed in a closed and sterile room. Because these silkworms are very sensitive, they die easily. That’s why the door to the room must always be closed. The caterpillar’s house must always be clean and sprayed with disinfectant. Rumah Ulat Sutera buys caterpillar eggs from KPSA (Natural Silk Concession Unit) Soppeng in South Sulawesi. Only Soppeng and Semarang are allowed to breed silkworms in Indonesia. Permission is granted by the Ministry of Forestry.

Eggs purchased in 1 small box amounted to 25,000 eggs. The sicbo online
caterpillar eggs are very small, maybe the size of spinach seeds. After the eggs hatch, the small silkworms are fed mulberry leaves 4 times a day. The times for giving are regular at 7, 11, 15 and 16. After approximately one month the caterpillars will start making cocoons or cocoons.
