In China, there are eight most famous types of brocade, namely, Miao brocade, Zhuang brocade, Yao brocade, Dong brocade, Dai brocade, Buyi brocade, Tujia brocade and Maonan brocade. There are also derivative varieties such as batiks, tie-dyed fabrics and indigo prints, all having their own particularities
This book covers some 30 kinds of woven and dyed products popular among the peoples of different parts of China. They are noted for their superb patterns and highly decorative, academic and practical value.
