The craft dates back as far as 5th-3rd century BC in ancient China, making it a very ancient and established craft and art form. The practice of mending and reinforcing cloth for practical reasons led to the skill being turned into decorative art form embroidery.
Remarkably, the skill and practice of handmade embroidery has changed little since its inception, with the same materials and techniques still being used today as an art form.
Following the industrial revolution, embroidery became more widely available with the introduction of sewing machines and mass production, flourishing in the second half of the 19th century.
Embroider can be used on a whole manner of different fabrics used for a variety of practical or decorative purposes, including handkerchiefs, clothing, uniforms, flags, shoes, tunics, robes, calligraphy, purses, dresses, tapestries, tablecloths, napkins and any fabric that has a decorative pattern stitched into it.
Traditional embroidery material used was usually wool, linen and silk and has been used for thousands of years, while modern embroidery tread is most commonly manufactured using cotton, novelty yarn and rayon, as well still employing the traditional options.
