When you come to Suzhou, you’ll be amazed by a famous handcraft, that is Suzhou embroidery (Su embroidery), or Suxiu in Chinese. Suzhou embroidery consists of very detailed representations of almost any subject embroidered onto fine silk with silk thread: the distinction between near water and distant mountains, the deepness of chambers and pavilions, the liveliness of human activities, and the peacefulness of flowers and birds.
One of the distinctive features of Suzhou embroidery is that some pieces are two-sided; that is, the picture is repeated on both sides of the embroidered piece. Visitors around the world are now discovering the inherent beauty and artistry in these pieces. And you can see every detail of the unique beauty while observing the embroidery for yourself. If you have time, go to Zhenhu town and Dongzhu town, the cradle of Suzhou embroidery, for some authentic and delicate embroidery artwork.
