Jute Embroidery

The art of jute embroidery originates from Shanxi Provence.  Jute embroidery is achieved through layer upon layer of cotton applied in various methods to the outer sole of different footwear.  It was discovered on the outsole (bottom of footwear touching the ground) of warriors' shoes in the Zhou Dynasty.

 

黃麻刺繍

 

源自山⻄的工藝,用黃麻以不同的刺繡的針步技法,把多層用棉布製成的鞋履底部縫製起來,就是納底拉花千層底。據說黃麻刺繍有三千年歷史,有記載中國周朝時武士穿的鞋履底部都以此工藝製成。麻是植物的皮層纖維,麻線堅韌而耐用。
