Zhuang Embroidery, Nanning
Zhuang embroidery has a long history. Zhuang women begin to learn embroidery when they were only a child. Besides decorating clothes, embroidery is also used to finish galluses, door curtains and quilts. Besides, threads of various colors are embroidered on the edges or surfaces of clothes, trousers, aprons, scarves and shoes with all kinds of traditional patterns. Although the Zhuang embroiders are made without any pictures or samples but are out of the makers own ideas and skillful hands, they are arranged symmetrically and in a clever way, embroidered with fluent treads and colorful patterns full of special and profound meanings.
