    About this book

Nanjing Cloud-Brocade is a great representation of ancient Chinese silk weaving techniques, and the most representative of three well-known brocades made in ancient China. It was exclusively used by emperors in Yuan, Ming, and Qing Dynasty, enjoying the reputations of 'Treasure of the East' and 'Special Chinese products'. In 2006, it was included in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by the UNESCO. Based on the history of Nanjing Cloud-Brocade as well as the development of weaving techniques, this book attempts to provide a simple but in-depth introduction to the traditional pursuit of Chinese to decoration and their symbolic meanings.
