Suzhou embroidery, multi-colored and gorgeous, is regarded as a pearl of Chinese art. The original place of Suzhou embroidery is in the area of Wu County, and now it has already spreaded to Wuxi, Changzhou, Yangzhou, Suqian, Dongtai and other places of Jiangsu. With fertile land and mild climate, Jiangsu is a good place for raising silkworms; as a result this place is rich in silk and wins the name of the town of brocade and embroidery. The superior geographical environment, the gorgeous brocade, and the prismy thread together create favorable condition for Suzhou embroidery. Daily necessities of Suzhou embroidery do not only varied stitches, superb workmanship and elegant colors, but the designs have the meaning of festivities, longevity, fortune which are welcomed by the populace. There is also an upscale variety, called "the picture embroiders" or "Lady's chamber embroidery".
