Embroidery, as a culture of long history, many young people probably do not know much about it. Embroidery is embroidered various kinds of patterns on fabric. No matter the embroidery is in China or Western, it is one of the ancient manual skills. If you know about the fashionable element in these two years, it cannot dispense with embroidery. The embroidery elements are simply anywhere. Clothes, shoes, bags, this embroidery trend made a big splash.
Embroidery is one of the excellent private traditional handicrafts. China is a pioneer country that people found and used natural silk. In the wake of using silks, silk fabrics are producing and developing. And the embroidery craft is spring up little by little. Embroidery craft was advocated in the Song dynasty. The Chinese embroidery is mainly divided into four categories, Suzhou embroidery, Hunan embroidery, Sichuan embroidery, and Guangdong embroidery. It also prompted the development of Chinese embroidery craft. Besides, embroidery is the Chinese traditional foreign trade products, the economic value is really high. Embroidery is enjoying the highly reputation overseas. Therefore, embroidery is one of the representations of Chinese culture and art. It is extremely popular with foreigners.
After the embroidery was formed a system in the east, it was transmitted to the west by trade. Then the embroidery was once caught on the upper-class social circle of the European royalty. The obsession of the embroidery crafts for the Europeans has guided the development of the western embroidery. There are two reasons for the obsession of the embroidery for the Europeans. On the one hand, developed western embroidery can boycott the influxion of the Chinese silk fabrics; on the other hand, the embroidery products were high-end, it would bring huge profit for the businessmen. In the 17th century, the women of the upper-class society circle took the embroidery craft as one of their required courses, they thought embroidered was the manifestation of well-bred.
The biggest difference between Chinese embroidery and the western embroidery is that the Chinese people are good at using all kinds of stitch to express the flowers, birds, person, and scenery, the main embroidery material is a silk thread. However, the Europeans are more emphasis on researching all kinds of embroidery materials, pearl, levigated shell, gem, even gold chain can be the embroidery materials. And the thread is not also constrained by silk yarn, flax, cotton thread, and woolen yarn are all usual materials.
It is a pity for Chinese embroidery that it is not be enrolled in the world’s intangible cultural heritage list yet. However, there is a little island for a long distance in the Eastern Mediterranean, called Cyprus. The hand embroidery of this country was already enrolled in the world’s intangible cultural heritage list. The history of the hand embroidery of Cyprus was about hundreds of years ago. The hand embroidery of Cyprus was transmitted by Venice when there were many Venice nobility taking a vacation in here. Hand embroidery was not only affected by Venice, it was also affected by the geometric pattern of ancient Greek. It is a combination of art and social custom.
