Hunan China Silk Embroidery
Hunan silk embroidery is undoubtedly one of the most famous of all Chinese style embroideries. Originating almost 2,000 years ago Hunan silk embroidery uses pure silk threads. This type of hand silk thread hand embroidery is used on very soft, thin rayon and other gossamer style materials. Hunan silks are perfect for collectors of fine silk as the patterns can be quite stunning. Also used as home décor and given as special gifts.
The classic pattern shown here is a dragon, tiger and phoenix pattern embroidered with very traditional Chinese colors of luck and happiness.
