Abstract—Lotus thread is usually collected to make a lotus silk and is high-quality material in fashion field. Lotus is commonly planted in Southeast Asian countries such as Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, and some parts of India. Up to now, the lotus fibre is still gathered manually and this process takes at least two months to collect thread enough for making a scarf. As a result, the products made by lotus silk are usually expensive. Besides, the quality of fibre in lotus stalk will decreases after 24 hours of cutting down and is easily broken, thus, lotus fibre spinning process needs implementing quickly. To promote the development of traditional products made by lotus silk and enhance effectiveness of the lotus fibre spinning process, this paper introduced the first design of lotus fibre spinning machine which solves all shortcomings of manually spinning process.

Keywords—machine, spinning, lotus fibre, design, silk
