Shu brocade is one of the four most famous brocades (Yun brocade of Nanjing, Song brocade of Suzhou, Zhuang brocade of Guangxi) with a history of more than 2000 years. It is bright-colored and beautiful, soft, various and durable. The minority women in the southwest of China wear waist scarf and headwear made of Shu brocade as ornaments.
With the development of modern textile, the weaving of Shu brocade sagged gradually and there is only one Shu brocade factory left in the city. The factory is situated in the west suburbs near Dufu Thatched Cottage by the Huanhuaxi River (Washing Flower River) producing quilt cover, dress material and varieties of brocade ornaments.
