History of Shu Embroidery or Sichuan Embroidery

The techniques of Sichuan embroidery, also called Shu embroidery, improved steadily I the 10th century. At first, the stitching was prevalent among the ordinary people. It gradually became a trade after the 18th century. The embroideries produced in Jiulongxiang and Kejiaxiang in Chendu were the most famous. The government-run Industry Promoting Bureau (quangongju) also had an embroidery section. The main products of that time were official robes, gifts, ceremonial robes for princes and court ministers, ornamental flowered items, trousseau items, colored mosquito nets, and embroidery screens.
