The main goal of the paper is to answer the question: How to use traditional knowledge in order to create cultural-economic goods? This is topical because the connection of real tradition and crafts with responsible forms of entrepreneurship represent a real direction to achieve sustainable development goals, with a revitalization of culture that is related to real historical facts. This paper represents a continuation of work that relies on our previous research findings (related to key phenomena: silk production, silk roads, proto-industrialization, cultural political economy etc.). Theories we rely on (such as the cultural political economy, sustainable development, common goods, social and cultural entrepreneurship, cultural tourism) have enabled to summarize the facts that are related to our key phenomena. We used our previous research data which implied strong historical approaches, archive data and field research. This allowed us to strengthen universal findings and conclusions we came to about each element. In confirming mentioned conclusions our specific previous studies helped a lot (Serbia, Calabria cases), as well as the examples of other authors. Moreover, this helped us create a possible solution for a revitalization of silk production as multi-layered heritage that can contribute to sustainable development.
