Make Friends Cry Over Their Homes!

[ From: David Cheng | Published: 2008-11-30 Views: 5203 | Booked times: 55 ]

With its roots in the water city of Su Zhou, Su Embroidery has long been celebrated for its exquisite design and smooth texture. Dongwu Renjia in Beijing offers customers a rare opportunity to shop for authentic Su embroidery.

Admirers flock to the shop to burn cash for a good piece of Su embroidery!

Inside the shop, I felt like I was in the kingdom of embroidery: images of cats, tigers, gardens, flowers and court ladies surrounded me. One of the noticeable items was a garden embroidery: colorful sceneries and crystal clear water. I was also impressed by a double-faced work, which showed embroidered tigers on one side, and embroidered leopards on the other. Works like these could instantly make you home look unique.

Su embroidery has been listed as one of China's national cultural heritages. A fine piece of work requires a skilled worker months and even years to finish. As I observed, many customers came to buy Su embroidery works because they consider them highly collectible.

The shop owner is an expert in Su embroidery, and shares her knowledge generously. She speaks good English, and will ship their works right to your door!
