Abstract : Bursa was the important city where silkworm egg and cocoon were produced; silk and velvet were woven by hand and exported to the Europe in the period of Ottoman Empire. Since silkworm was brought to Anatolia, Bursa sustains its importance in this sector. Sericulture has begun at the same period in Amasya that is one of the Ottoman cities. Silks came from Iran were woven in this city because of being on Iran’s trade route. The fabrics woven in Amasya were preferred by Ottoman Palace and also exported to the other countries. Sericulture and cocoon cultivating were made in Mugla the city has eligible climate condition to cultivate mulberry. Silk was woven by using simple bench as a family work. Bursa became rapidly an industrial city on silk texture because of having raw material by beginning of republic period.
