Suzhou Embroidery Research Institute is situated in the Mountain Villa of Secluded Beauty, a famous garden in Suzhou, which was built in the Qing Dynasty. Covering an area of only 0.2 hectares, the mountain villa of Secluded Beauty is celebrated for its elegant architecture and beautiful scenery.
Its major attraction lies in the artificial mountain which is made up exclusively of Taihu rocks. While wandering through the mountain caves, you will feel as if confronted with a full mountain range.
Established in 1957, Suzhou Embroidery Research Institute now has over 100 specialized experts including senior craftsmen and highly qualified artists. Many silk embroideries found in the Embroidery Research Institute are fashioned from top quality silk. With a long history, Suzhou embroidery is
characterized by beautiful patterns, elegant colors, and rich and meticulous stitching. It is like an actual painting when observed at a distance, but upon close inspection the individual silk threads can be seen.
In order to preserve and develop the intangible cultural heritage of Suzhou embroidery, Suzhou Embroidery Institute has trained hundreds of thousands of embroidery masters and specialists, including more than 100 Chinese Arts and Crafts Masters, Senior Arts and Crafts Masters, Arts and
Crafts Masters, and other specialists.
The elaborate embroidery works created by Suzhou Embroidery Institute have been exhibited in more than 120 countries and regions. These delicate embroidery works have been extolled as “The Pride of China” and “The Pearl of Oriental Art” by international friends, wining
prizes both at home and abroad for more than 10 times. These works have also been appointed as state gifts presented to heads of foreign states for many times.
