Cross stitch, originated from Turkey in the 4th century, spread to China last century. As a country that has long tradition of embroidery, China quickly embraced this new type of embroidery. As time passed, China has formed its very own style of cross stitching.

 

On the west side of the middle 3rd ring road, I saw a cross stitch shop named Ben Se (In English: Natural Color). Upon entering into the shop, I found various cross stitch works hanging on the walls, and a woman stitching in a corner. The works come in different sizes, with some mounted. The patterns show various Chinese figures, including characters, scenic spots, animals, cartoon, flowers and plants. They also provide design and mounting service, and sell imported works.

 

The prices ranging from RMB 10 to RMB 360 are very reasonable. A number of smaller items cost 10 yuan or 15 yuan each, and look rather interesting, which can serve as good presents or souvenirs.

 

What I appreciated

Reasonable prices.

 

What customers appreciate
