As one in the western culture learns about Van Gogh and the great western art masters growing up, Chinese children learn about Silk Art. Its ancient heritage comes from the royal embroiderers, families placed into Suzhou China thousands of years ago by The Chinese Emperor to embroider his robes. The art produced by these families all belong to the Emperor, hence the art of the King.
The skills to produce silk art are passed from generation to generation and require years of learning to master the techniques. While embroidery around the world is rare, high-quality Silk Art is rare. Only a tiny handful of people can produce Silk Art to the point of touching your heart and soul.
