——Exhibition Overview——

Part 5. Exquisiteness and Elegance


In the Yuan Dynasty, the Mongols re-established a unified regime and resumed the connection between the Eastern and Western regions through military activities during the Expedition. In addition, due to the preference of the emperors and the employment of craftsmen from West and central Asia, while following the crafts and styles of the textiles of the Song Dynasties, the Mongol nationality restored the use of gold brocade in the Song Dynasties, leading the trend of wearing exquisite and elegant clothing. At the same time, due to the unification of a regime and the re-establishment of the connection with the West, cotton planting and weaving originally limited in border areas spread inland. Developed methods of cotton planting and weaving brought about a reform of wearing fabric. Soft, durable and affordable cotton cloth gradually replaced silk and hemp as the common wearing fabric.
