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.
