Chinese embroideries.

I just love antique Chinese embroideries. Not only is the embroidery so superbly executed but the fabric on which it is embroidered has wonderful designs on the silk.
This piece of Chinese embroidery is hand worked in fabulous shades of silk thread. The silk on which it is embroidered has a pattern of clouds.
You will find many pieces of these Chinese embroideries on the 'RagRescue' website.
I managed to salvage two old kimono's that had worn badly and were past repair. I saved the best bits of embroideries , as I you all know I can't throw anything away.

Superb as a collection or would look wonderful on a hanging or quilt top.
