Ironing the silk.
Next we moved to the Stitching Department! This work room was very nice. There was lots of natural and artificial lighting, and plenty of fans. This factory is definitely NOT a "sweatshop".
Here are some of their clothing design sketches...
One of the garments they produce. In this factory they produce fabrics and garments that are used to create items from the major European high fashion houses. (But they were discreet and wouldn't name names ;) ...)
The stitchers hard at work.
Our last stop at the factory was the Quality Control Room.
This employee shows off a finished scarf piece that is labeled with each color number used to create it.
And here is what the final product looks like just before it is ironed...
Our tour was now complete and we made a short walk to their showroom.

They also specialize in Silk Sarees and they even make silk neckties.
