Silk cloth, tinned bread, various delicious mangoes or the Padma river. When you hear these names, the first place that comes to your mind is Rajshahi. To taste them, I took the night train to Rajshahi, the land of mangoes and Kalairuti, the famous education city of the north. Padma is spread on one side, and this Silk City is on its lap.

Basically, our journey to Rajshahi is by boarding the night Padma Express. We went down there to the tourist motel. Tourism is the largest hotel chain in our country. Almost all major cities in the North have motels. After going there, we freshened up in the room and went out after breakfast.

Rajshahi’s famous mango and litchi garden is the first place to go on this journey. I took an auto from the motel and ran to Kashiadanga bypass rail gate first. After walking down there, I entered the mango-lychee garden. After eating mango-lychee, we made our way to Marmaria market in Karnahar.

Rajshahi Silk Factory was a state-owned factory, established in 1961. In 2021, Rajshahi silk was recognized as one of the GI products of Bangladesh.

Silk is a natural protein fiber, some types of which are used in textile manufacturing. This type of yarn is obtained from the cocoons of a type of silkworm. This yarn is produced commercially by rearing silkworms under special systems. The method of rearing silkworm cocoons is called sericulture.

But why is silk so expensive? Basically, to produce 1 kg of silk, 104 kg of mulberry leaves and 3000 silk moths are required. At the same time, when compared with other fibers, silk is made depending on the environment and nature. Not only is silk cultivated and produced in Rajshahi, but after Rajshahi, most silk is produced in Rangpur and Dinajpur in the north.
