Brief Introduction

Hand-embroidery is historic handicraft in China. As a record, the earliest unearthed ancient artifact of hand-embroidery is made during the Warring States Periods (B.C. 475-B.C. 221). Till Qing Dynasty (A.C.1636-1912) a Chinese embroidery developed per different regions and various genres such as; Su, Shu, Yue, Xiang, Lu, Dian among many other varieties. Each genre combining its regional culture and characteristics creates different styles, techniques, and skills of stitching. Those genres having learned advantage from others integrated into their own genre gradually forming the gene style which is used till today.
