Suzhou embroidery (or Su embroidery) with a history of more than 2,600 years originated in Suzhou, a water town in the south of the lower reaches of the Yangtze River.

As one of the four major embroideries in China, it was among the first included in the National List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of China.

The Charm of the East - the Selected Suzhou Embroidery Artworks Exhibition, jointly organized by China Cultural Centre in Sydney and Yue Yuan Gallery & Decor, features 36 selected Su embroidery artworks and Kesi round fans from the gallery’s collection.

These exhibits demonstrate the beautiful patterns, ingenious designs, meticulous craftsmanship, lively needlework and elegant colours of Su embroidery. The creators not only inherit the traditional skills accumulated over two thousand years, but also keep the tradition abreast of the times with modern innovative design.

We cordially invite you to explore the delicate beauty and brilliant vitality of Su embroidery and experience the unique charm of Suzhou, the embroidery paradise.

We hope this exhibition will provide you with a fantastic opportunity to explore the glamour of this traditional skill and appreciate the continuous inheritance of craftsmanship of the folk artists.
