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
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.
