Embroideries and Brocades

The abundance of silk sets the stage for the emergence of embroidery and silk weaving handcrafts. Suzhou, Changsha, Guangdong and Chengdu are known as China’s four major schools of embroidery. The most famous Chinese silk products include the cloudy-patterned embroidery of Nanjing, Song-style satins of Suzhou, and Shu-style embroidery of Sichuan. Some ethnic minorties, such as Zhuang, Dai, Li, Dong and Tujia, produce silk products in distinct styles.
