Bi began collecting the pieces in 1997 and has about 1,000 garments from the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing dynasties, and almost 10,000 woven textile pieces from those eras.

“The craftsmanship, colors, patterns and materials reflect Chinese aesthetics, which emphasizes grace and serenity,” says Bi.

To mark the friendship between China and Kuwait as well as echo the Belt and Road Initiative, some traditional Kuwaiti garments were also presented at the event.
