The given diagrams illustrate the life cycle of silk worm and how silk cloth is produced. Overall, a silkworm starts life as an egg and grows into a moth. Silk is produced from the cocoon of silkworm and there are six stages in the production process.

First of all, the moth lays eggs and these eggs hatch into larvae in 10 days. After hatching, the larvae feed on mulberry leaves and within in 4-6 weeks, they begin to produce silk thread. Next cocoon is formed in 3-8 days and this is used in silk cloth production. Finally, a moth emerges from cocoon in 15 days and the cycle repeats.

In order to produce silk, selected cocoons are put into boiling water. Once they have been boiled, the silk is unwinded into 300-900 metre long threads. Following this, threads are twisted and weaved. Finally, the threads are dyed to produce silk of desired colour.
