Embroidered arts showcase local needlework techniques


China stitching methods dominate embroidered home accents line even as modern and western styles draw increased attention.



  • Traditional China stitching techniques: Utilizing extremely thin silk thread that allows for detailed needlework and intricate designs, Su embroidery is the most widely used technique for the line. The Xiang style, characterized by thick stitching and uneven needlework, is also popular. Makers employ the Yue and Shu methods as well.
  • Modern & Western elements gain ground: Local themes continue to dominate design options, but releases in Western motifs such as Canada’s maple leaf are increasingly produced. Landscapes and portraits that resemble oil paintings are also available.
  • Price projection: Despite escalating manpower spending, most companies do not intend to impose markups in the months ahead. This is because of the relatively high profit margins they generate from embroidered home accents.
  • Revenue forecast: Although export sales are on a decline due to sluggish business conditions in the US and Europe, suppliers predict overall revenue will remain stable in 2012. Strong domestic sales are anticipated to sustain the line’s viability.
