Shandong (Lu) Embroidery

Last updated by chinatravel at 2014/5/14

As an important cultural heritage of the Chinese, Shangdong embroidery is not only one of the four major types of embroidery in China but also the earliest one recorded in historical documents. Shandong embroidery has played a very important role in Chinese history of arts and crafts. Famous in Spring-Autumn and Warring-State periods, “the satins of Qi state” and “the white silk of Lu state” were much more popular for their high quality. According to the historical records, “all the women in the capital of Qi (today's Linzi, Shandong) were able to embroider, even the stupid were skilled at it”. The most representative genre of Shandong embroidery is hair and skill embroidery which are hand-made of human hair and silk threads. With exquisite skills and superb craftsmanship, only the Shandong embroideries can manifest Chinese calligraphy and paintings so vividly and true-to-life. Therefore, Shandong embroidery distinguishes itself from other types of embroidery, such as Su Embroidery and Shu Embroidery, with its elaborate materials and fine and exquisite skills.
