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.
