The city wrapped in silk - Diyarbakir's Memory
It is no wonder that so many Diyarbakir folk songs mention silk. In both the economic and the social sense, of all types of textiles production have deep roots in Diyarbakir and its environs, both silk production and weaving have always been important. In the Ottoman Empire, after Bursa, Diyarbakir was among the first cities that came to mind regarding silk production.
There are both global and local reasons for the Ottoman Empire losing its place in the world market and for silk production and textiles no longer being the main economic activity in the region. And those mulberry trees are long gone...
Nevertheless, silk is a product that still retains its cultural meaning and is an important indicator as we consider the city's history of production.
