Characteristics of Traditional Suzhou Embroidery

suzhou embroidery

The major characteristics of traditional Suzhou embroidery are: flatness, neatness, fineness, density, evenness, brightness, harmony and smoothness. Flatness refers to the texture of the embroidered surface; neatness refers to the shape of the outline; fineness refers to the skillful use of stitches and the finesse of the silk threads; density refers to the careful spacing of the lines; smoothness refers to the quality of the silk threads; harmony refer to the color combinations; and brightness refers to the eye-catching appearance of the embroidery.

These eight qualities for traditional Suzhou embroidery are complementary. With the evolution of the stitches, the creation of new themes and the change of the forms, the characteristics of the traditional skills have been steadily improved and new characteristics have been added.
