Embroidery

The Chinese are famous for their skill in embroidery. In traditional China, embroidery products were seen as follows: official robes for mandarins and their wives, petticoats for ladies, purses for rich and poor, shoes for for men and women with natural feet, as well as those with golden lilies - the cramped-up deformities which did an imperfect duty in place of the natural growth, caps for men and boys, etc. Su-zhou in south China is very famous for embroidery. Two-side embroidery makes the picture seen the same on both side of the product.
