The Pyongyang Kim Jong Suk Textile Mill, established in October 1948, has been called a mother factory of the textile industry in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
The mill has over 50 workshops, including the general ones of spinning, silk-spinning, weaving, chemical fi bre, and dyeing and knitting workshop. It also has a textile branch mill and some other auxiliary workshops. It is increasing its production by solving many scientifi c and technological problems arising in the production as required by the developing reality.
The processes of weaving rayon yarn by elastic staff looms and hydraulic weaving machines have been renovated and the PLC system introduced to the production processes.
Spinning and weaving, dyeing, printing and all other production processes of the mill are running at full capacity to ensure the mass production of quality spun rayon fabrics, prints and other cloths. Recently, the technicians of the mill have set up a new process of producing quality cloths for bags by relying on locallyavailable materials in collaboration with relevant units including the Pyongyang Textile Machine Factory and Pyongyang Han Tok Su University of Light Industry.
Produced with these cloths are various types of bags suited to the sex, ages and psychological and physical features of the students ranging from primary school to university. The mill is striving to contribute to the improvement of the people’s standard of living by producing more high-quality cloths and other textile fabrics.
On July 10, 1957 the mill was twinned with a Vietnamese textile mill and the general dyeing workshop was renamed the Cuba Che Guevara Twin Workshop on October 26, 1989.
