Embroidery expert wanting apprentices in Yunnan

China was the first producer of silk in the world. Silk and silk fabric emerged in China at least 5,500 years ago. The famous Silk Road to the Middle East and Europe started 138 BC. Embroidery was used to give the cloth its delicate, often brilliant patterns. The four renowned embroideries of China are Su embroidery (Jiangsu province), Yue embroidery (Guangdong province), Xiang embroidery (Hunan province) and Shu embroidery (Sichuan province). Embroidery needs the artist to be very patient. Take the famous Su embroidery artwork double faced "Cat" for example. The artist splits the hair thin colour silk thread into half, quarter, 1/12 or even 1/48 of its original thickness, the thousands of ends and joints are concealed in the process of embroidery. The most difficult part of the artwork is the eyes of the cat. More than 20 colours are used to give the eyes lustre and life.
