Posted on Aug 28, 2012 | Chinese Culture |

Chinese Embroidery is a traditional folk art with a long history. It plays an important role in the history of Chinese arts and crafts. Silkworm raising and silk reeling and weaving promote the development of Chinese embroidery. The art of embroidery stemmed from the production of silk threads and fabrics.

Nowadays, Chinese embroidery is widely practiced in almost every part of China. There are four famous Chinese embroideries: Xiang embroidery in central China’s Hunan Province, Shu embroidery in western China’s Sichuan Province, Yue embroidery in southern China’s Guangdong Province and Su embroidery in eastern China’s Jiangsu Province.
