Shaoxing, Is Also the City of Fabrics

Along with the numerous names for Shaoxing, City of Scholars, City of Water, etc., Shoaxing is also the City of Textiles for China. And has a history as the City of Textiles since the early Tang Dynasty (618), when Shoaxing silk was well-known throughout China.

I really wanted to see a sweat shop, but this wasn’t one. This factory was much more modern than I was expecting. I think I’ll get to see one when we travel to Guangdong Provence — it be lame to travel all the way to China and not see a sweat shop.
