Xiang embroidery, one of the four great embroideries in China, is world famous for its exquisite techniques, unique features and long history.
And samples of it are coming to Brock next week in an exhibit called From Qing to Republic: Chinese Embroidery from 1644 to 1949.
The showcase, hosted by the Confucius Institute, features a collection of women’s embroidered clothing, including gowns, coats, jackets, waistcoats, pants, and skirts.
It also features a broad range of finery, such as hats, scarves, bags, bibs, collars, cuffs, and lace.
