    About this book

The history of Chinese printing, dyeing, weaving and embroidery can be traced to the late Neolithic Age. When patterned damask, brocade and braided embroidery made their appearance during the Shang and Zhou dynasties, it marked the arrival of consummate stage in printing, dyeing, weaving and embroidery crafts. Prosperity with all-round development emerged during the warring States Period, Qin and Han dynasties, when the world famous 'Silk Road' was opened up. A great variety of brocade and cotton textiles unearthed from time to time in No.1 Chu State Tomb of the Warring States Period at Mashan, Jiangling, Hubei province, the Western Han dynasty No.1 Tomb at Mawangdui, Changsha, Hunan province, and the ruined sites along the 'Silk Road' represent the splendid achievements during this period, the beautiful weft brocade, well-known and precious ko-ssy. Embroidery, simple, bright and clear wax-dyeing of Chinese folks, tie-and-dye silk, silk with hand-printed designs, and cotton textiles that appeared in the Tang and Song dynasties further pushed the craft to new height in China.
Included in this book are 203 fine works of various periods from the Shang to Song dynasties.
They have been edited and arranged according to age, specimen and pattern forms. An article 'Glorious tradition of printing, dyeing, weaving and embroidery crafts in China' is being published at the beginning of the book, with each woven fabric, appended with plate explanation.
This book, which is specially devoted to its subject, contains the richesto selection of fine works of ancient Chinese printing, dyeing, weaving and embroidery.
