About This Book

For the first time, the organisation and techniques of Chinese silk production, the uses of the silk produced - both bolts and made-up pieces - and the types and styles of its ornament are celebrated in this richly illustrated general survey. In this book, the author traces the cultural history of silk in China from its Neolithic origins to the twentieth century, considering its role in Chinese history, trade, religion and literature as well as its relationship to the other decorative arts.
