Tujia brocade, woven by the people of China's Tujia national minorityI,
is an ancient and rare folk art. Known as Xilankapu in the Tujia
language, where Xilan means "bedcover" and Kapu means "flower", it
refers to "a bedcover brocaded with flowers". As a traditional
handicraft of the Tujia people, Xilankapu is woven lengthwise with red,
blue and black cotton threads, and crosswise with cotton threads of
various colors or silk threads. The whole weaving process is finished on
an ancient waist loom using only the weaver's deft hands plus a
needle-like tool made of ox horn. Tujia brocade boasts a long history It
has evolved from ancient fabrics to Cong cloth, through Lan'gan fine
cloth, Ban cloth, and Xidong cloth, to the Tujia brocade of the present.
In the Ming and Qing dynasties, Tujia brocade came into full bloom,
with its colors and patterns ranging from 100 to 200 types.
