Embroidery is a brilliant pearl in Chinese art and culture. From the magnificent Dragon Robe worn by emperors to the popular embroidery seen in today's fashions, embroidery adds so much beauty and pleasure to our life and culture. The oldest embroidered work in China on record dates from the Shang Dynasty and it has a long history of thousands of years.
The craft of embroidery is very popular between 14th century and the beginning of the 20th century. It is extensively applied for religion and household-use articles such as Buddhist statues, tobacco bags, wallets, pillow cases and table cloth and dress. The patterns of embroidery cover a larger range, from sun, moon, stars, mountains, dragons, and phoenix to tiger, flower and grass, clouds and geometric figures. Auspicious words are also fashionable and these patterns are widely used in the embroidered works.
Chinese embroidery has four main traditional styles: Suzhou embroidery (Su Xiu), Hunan embroidery (Xiang Xiu), Guangdong embroidery (Yue Xiu) and Sichuan embroidery (Shu Xiu). All of them are nominated as Chinese Intangible Cultural Heritage.
A piece of work of art! This red hand-embroidered waistcoat is an outer garment with mandarin collar, covering the body down to the hip. Made of fine silk brocade with exquisite peony and butterfly patterns, this red waistcoat is especially accentuating the nobleness and elegance of women. In Chinese culture, peony is the queen of flowers, so it is the symbol of great wealth and high rank, and the women with blue blood are entitled to be in the dress with peony patterns. The romance of butterflies is well known, telling a beautiful girl and a handsome boy, who are deeply in love, turn into butterflies flying into the sky. So in the eyes of the Chinese, butterfly is the symbol of eternal love. You will see that the waistcoat is designed in an asymmetric style, with the left side over right side, fastened at the front with handmade frog buttons. Be creative with accessories. Be fabulous always! If you choose a fantastic Chinese-style dress with the red hand-embroidered waistcoat, matching with your favorite pant or skirt and Jimmy Choo shoes, you will make your look fabulous.
