Lonely Planet review for Silk Workshop
Past the carpet factory, southeast of Hotan, is the small town of Jíyàxiāng (吉亚乡), a traditional centre for silk production. You can look around the fascinating workshop (sīchóuchǎng; atlas karakhana in Uighur) to see how the silk is spun, dyed and woven using traditional methods. A return trip by taxi to the workshop, taking in the carpet factory, costs Y60.
