——Exhibition Overview——

Part 6. Splendid Textiles


"With brocade as my clothes, while pearls decorate my collar."


The lines originally intended to describe theatrical costumes in poems of the Qing Dynasty reflect the beauty and splendor of the clothing and ornaments of the Ming and Qing dynasties. As the last prosperous periods of feudal China, the Ming and Qing dynasties enjoyed a well-developed economy and consummate technical skills. In an era abounded in material products, towns with specialized handicraft production and cities with developed industry and commerce nourished their citizens. As a result, secular fashion prevailed. The textile industry underwent dramatic changes in the Ming Dynasty. Satin replaced brocade as the top-grade silk fabric, and cotton cloth was substituted for silk as the most common textile fabric. More top-grade crafts entered into common people's lives, and their aesthetic culture was also reflected on the textiles of this era through printing and dyeing.
