Silk was historically only reserved for royalty but these days it is more widely used, especially for the dead. When a Malagasy is buried, the body is wrapped in a silk sheet named a ‘lambamena’ and after a few years, the family would return to replace the silk sheet with a new one within the tomb. The custom is called famadihana and every village specializes in one step of the production. We delight in a local lunch and enjoy an evening of leisure in Ambositra.
