Su embroidery is known for its rich colors, intricate embroidery techniques, elegant designs and clean stitches. All these characteristics, which distinguish it from other embroidery styles in China, have been long closely connected with the natural environment and lifestyle of Suzhou, a city that has a long history of silk production and textile craftsmanship.

Since ancient times, needlework had been a must-learn skill for women, who had to make clothes for their families. Now, skilled embroiderers are helping their craft evolve to fit modern Chinese lifestyles.
