Traditional Manufacturing Technique for Beijing-style Cheongsam

The traditional exquisite technique for Beijing-style cheongsam has a profound cultural connotation and profound international influence, which was honored as an intangible cultural heritage of Beijing city and the district level in 2006.

Beijing-style cheongsam is mainly made of tapestry satin, soochow brocade and silk. Tapestry satin is a Chinese traditional silk fabric which is fabricated by interweaving warp sateen with wefts of more than three colors, revealing sheeny and smooth surface, thick hand feeling and ornate colors perfect for women’s wear. Soochow brocade is thinner than tapestry satin, featuring soft and flexible with rich patterns like elegant buildings and landscape, flowers and birds, insects and fishes. These various classifications for traditional Beijing-style cheongsam reveal its rigorous standards on material selection in terms of their textures, which is one of important reasons why Beijing-style cheongsam can be inherited.
