——Exhibition Overview——

Part 1. Completeness of Etiquette


China is a State of Ritual, and that is why its alias has the character "Xia (elegance)"; Chinese clothing is splendid, and that is why its alias has the character "Hua (splendor)."


The original textile were woven by such materials as silk, hemp, cotton and wool, and were then cut into several pieces to make clothing. Apart from such practical uses as cover, heat retention and decoration for bodies, clothing also has several social functions in restraining individual behaviors, identifying social status and class as well as cementing cultural identity. The Pre-Qin textiles and clothing, therefore, helped establish the social etiquette and aesthetic norms, thus playing a part in everyday life of people in the first national fusion in Chinese history.
