FYI: A small village-level silk industry existed in Southern Highlands and Western Highlands provinces between 1979 and 1983. Cocoons of silk were produced by silkworms fed on mulberry leaves and the cocoons were exported. The fledgling industry collapsed when government funding was withdrawn. Production was greatest in the Lake Kutubu area of Southern Highlands Province.
