Silk trade and production date back to ancient times in Lebanon. Its production saw a golden age during 1810-1912, and became a pillar of the Lebanese economy, accounting for more than 60% of all exports from 1872-1910.
Our team works tirelessly to ensure Lebanese people have a reliable alternative to the politically-backed media outlets with their heavily-funded and dangerous propaganda machines. We've been detained, faced nonstop cyber attacks, censorship, attempted kidnapping, physical intimidation, and frivolous lawsuits draining our resources. Financial support from our readers keeps us fighting on your behalf. If you are financially able, please consider supporting The961's work. Support The961. Make a contribution now.
