3,600 boxes of silkworms distributed to Herat farmers

KABUL: As many as 3,600 boxes of silkworms have been distributed to farmers in Zinda Jan, Enjil, Guzara and Pashtun Zarghun districts of the country’s western province of Herat. Provincial Directorate of Herat Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock said in a statement that more than 3,500 boxes of silkworms have been distributed to farmers this year. “We grew about 3,600 boxes with the help of institutions, about 80 percent of which have grown in Zinda Jan district,” the statement quoted Khalil Ahmad, Herat’s agriculture director as saying. “About 20 percent of silkworms have been grown in Enjil, Guzara, and Pashtun Zarghun districts, which has had good results, and the financial status of the farmers has improved.” According to the district official, women perform most of the work in the silk industry. “Almost 60 percent of the silk industry is done by women,” said Ahmad Shah Qawami, the district’s head of the silk workers’ union in Zinda Jan. Silk is one of the most important contributors to the global textile and clothing business, constantly expanding and changing in terms of demand. The luxurious feel, shiny appearance, resilience, strength, and light weight of silk fiber are just a few of its many attributes. Silk is frequently used in various garments, including dresses, bridal gowns, neckties, and scarves, and in home furnishings, including wall hangings, pillows, upholstery, and draperies. Silk also conducts electricity less than other materials, which encourages the usage of the material in ties, shirts, haute couture clothing, formal From P1 dress suits, robes, kimonos, and sundresses. The Afghan farmers were not satisfied with the current year’s market conditions, while it was satisfactory last year. There is a 600-year history of the silk industry in Herat, and many families have continued this traditional trade. Mashal Noori
