Category of product

Class 42 Raw Silk (Raw silk of domesticated silkworms)

Producing area

Seiyo City, Ehime Prefecture

Registered Group

Ehime Seiyo Sericulture Industry Promotion Association

Characteristics

Iyo raw silk has a classy gloss and airy texture. It is bulky as threads are carefully and slowly extracted from cocoons and thus maintains the original “S‐shaped” waves that created by silkworms.

Link with the local area

It is a unique production area as it uses multi‐strand reeling machines that reel from a large number of cocoons at low speed while suppressing tension by a raw‐crocheting method‐using raw cocoons that are kept refrigerated.
