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.
