Lin added that the company will focus on making high-quality, finished silk products, using Chinese or popular elements of style.

The company has also developed a new tourism business, with a national 4A level tourist attraction, consisting of a time-honored mulberry garden, a silk culture museum and a shopping mall for silk products.

To deepen its cooperation with Uniqlo, a new factory will be set up in Kyoto, Japan, soon.

Besides High Fashion Group, the parent company of High Fashion Silk, other leading silk companies in China include Hangzhou-based Wensli Group, Zhejiang Jiaxin Silk Co Ltd and Jiangsu Xinmin Textile Science and Technology Co Ltd.

China's exports of genuine silk products in 2013 totaled $3.5 billion, up 3 percent, while imports in the sector rose 3.5 percent to $260 million, according to data from the General Administration of Customs.

Shanghai-based CharColn Consulting said the value of Chinese silk products accounts for less than 0.5 percent of the nation's entire textile industry, but these are high-value products with a strong cultural aspect.

China is the cradle of cultivated silk, and silkworms were being bred as long ago as 6,000 years.
