How to Appreciate Chinese Double Sided Silk Embroidery

Suzhou double sided silk embroidery is the cream of silk embroidery. Images look exactly the same on both sides of double sided embroidery. Special ways are used in knitting instead of knotting. Therefore the ends of silk threads are invisible. It is knitted in the right angle without piercing the other side. Both sides will present the same seamless effect. Double sided embroidery is normally mounted on a wooden frame as a screen. One really can't tell which side is the front and which is the back.

How to Appreciate Double Sided Silk Embroidery

1. Seamless effect from both sides
The most critical part of the double sided embroidery is the seamless effect from both side of the artwork. It takes an embroidery professional decades to be able to reach that level!

2. Quality of the artwork
To create a high quality piece, an artist needs to split a single silk thread into several thinner threads and embroider layer after layer with threads of a variety of colors to reach the final wonderful effect. It is extremely time-consuming and requires lots of handwork and patience.

3. Artistic Value
The most collectable embroidery pieces are top quality pieces with classic painting styles.

4. Size of the Silk Embroidery
A large quality piece of embroidery takes an artist (or group of artists) months or even years to complete. The larger the size of an embroidery piece, the higher the value of the piece.
