Najing Cloud Brocade

Last updated by chinatravel at 2013-11-1

Named for artistic cloud pattern weaves, Cloud Brocade is a traditional silk product originally from Chinese Southern Dynasties (420 - 589). In the Qing period (1644 - 1911), cloud brocade production reached its height when a brocade and embroidery production institute called "Jiangning Zhizao" was established in the city. So it wins the fame “three famous brocades” with Song Brocade of Suzhou and Shu Brocade of Sichuan. Fantastic brocade clothes were produced for emperors and royal families. Today, cloud brocade products include costumes, ethnic clothes, cushions, quilt covers, carpets, wall hangings and other craftworks. Wall hangings with traditional Chinese patterns would be both a good choice for room decoration.
