According to the oldest written records, silk production in Croatia goes back to the middle ages. In 18th century it becomes significant and even elitist economical and cultural activity. At the time Croatian regions where 3rd producer of silk in Europe and exported their products all around the World.
20th century marks turning point in European production of raw silk, where main European producers lost a competitive battle with rest of the world due to high labour cost and market changes. Up to recently, whole European production of raw silk has practically died out.

Goal is to control the quality in all steps of production process and to bring back cultural tradition of silk production in Croatia.
