artistic characteristics

The artistic features of Hunan embroidery are vivid, lifelike and strong in texture. It is based on the drawing, replacing the brush with needle and halo with line, and recreating the art on the basis of deliberately pursuing the original appearance of the draft. Therefore, its unique skill lies in the application of needle and thread. Hunan embroidery needle method is changeable, mainly mixed needle, and according to the different requirements of expressing different image and natural texture of different parts, it has developed into more than 70 kinds of needle method. Lines are of various colors. According to the themes of different drawings, different stitches are used to select and match various embroidery threads of different colors-silk or wool. With the special expressive force of stitching and the luster of embroidery threads, the images produced by embroidery not only preserve the original charm of brush and ink, but also increase through embroidery technology. It adds the authenticity and three-dimensional sense of objects, and plays an artistic effect that is not equal to that of general painting. As a result, Hunan embroidery became a unique school. By the end of the Qing Dynasty, "Hunan embroidery was prevalent, surpassing Su embroidery, and did not follow Gu embroidery's name." In the process of changing blueprints and dyeing silk, it is not a step back.

"Taking needle as pen, jewel as paper and velvet as color", embroiderers play a great role in mixing needle and color, and skillfully blend various primary colors in texture and texture. Used for the transition of the same color from deep to shallow or from shallow to deep, expressing gradually changeable and uniform color gradation, creating a variety of brilliant, harmonious and pleasant colors. After embroidering with No. 1 dark line, when embroidering No. 2 dark line, the cohesion must be uneven, interlaced, and without trace, so that the color can be harmonious. The overlap line should not be too long or too long or too short. This is the basic difference between Hunan embroidery and other embroidery stitches. It has become one of the characteristics of Hunan embroidery.

The use of embroidery, thick and thin, different colors, and appropriate exaggeration. Hunan embroidery embroidery is a special skill. The thinness and delicacy of Hunan embroidery are inseparable from the increasing progress of this skill.

Introduction to the color of thread: Hunan embroidery thread is rich in color, which is one of the main characteristics different from other embroidery species. According to the Xuehuan Embroidery Spectrum, there are 9 kinds of primary colors, including green, yellow, red, black, white (above positive colors), green, ochre, purple, Jiaojiao and onion (above intermediate colors). 88 kinds of primary colors are made of 745 different colors because of their shade dyeing.

Thousands of needles and threads swim on the embroidery manuscript, look at the thread and select the thread. Usually a Hunan embroidery artist has more than ten years' experience in embroidery to achieve the degree of embroidery fine works. Needles, broken threads, every thread has its merits.


Removal of tension is easier than embroidery. Remove the embroidery carefully and remove the excess wool and thread head. Relax the embroidery already embroidered and remove it. But the whole process requires great care.


Introduction of Acupuncture:

A. Uniform needling: Uniform needling is one of the basic needling methods of Hunan embroidery, and also the basis of various needling methods. The needle method of flat embroidery is: the rising and falling needles should be on the edge of the pattern, the lines are arranged evenly, and can not overlap tightly, rare can not expose the bottom, and strive for neatness. Flat embroidery can be divided into straight, horizontal and oblique embroidery according to silk texture, that is, straight, horizontal and oblique embroidery.

E. Chaotic embroidery has become a unique new variety because of its strong expression. Chaotic needle embroidery seems chaotic, in fact, chaotic needle: chaotic and regular, it is made of straight and horizontal skew lines with different lengths and lengths, which can be blended once and again. Because the lines are organized in a cross-shaped structure, the intrinsic colors of various color lines can still be retained after blending. The number of color blending is not limited until the light, color and shape meet the requirements.

F. Putting dots: Putting dots is one of the traditional stitches, which was used to embroider daily necessities in history. After liberation, embroidery workers creatively used it to embroider appreciative articles, and the effect was very good. Dot embroidery is based on yarn, oblique embroidery according to the warp and weft points of the yarn lattice, one needle at each point, gathered together.

H. Connector: The short needle is connected back and forth continuously, and the back needle is connected to the end of the front needle in a strip.

I. Needle rolling: Two threads are twisted tightly, connected into stripes, and the line turning is more flexible. It is more appropriate to embroider straight lines or curves.

J. Beating: It is also one of the traditional embroidery stitches, that is, to make a small circle of grains with lines to form an embroidery surface. Because every needle of embroidery sees one particle, it is called "beating embroidery". In appreciation, it is mostly used to embroider the heart; or it is used to embroider still life alone, such as flower baskets.

K, stitching and needling: the needle organization is similar to the loose stitching, but the difference is that the loose stitching overlaps and the stitching and the stitching are flat. The stitches of loose needles are concealed between the lines, and the stitches of pins and needles are relatively exposed. Kneads and needles are mostly used to embroider tree trunks and stones in embroidery appreciation.

When embroidering, the back line is embedded in the middle of the front line, and the silk is clamped together, and then the end of the previous line is connected. Every stitch should be aimed at the center of the circle, and a hidden needle should be made near the center of the circle.

Origin Environment

Changsha does not produce silk. Archaeological findings show that the ancient silkworm mulberry area in Hunan is located in the Lingling and Hengyang areas in the upper reaches of the Xiangjiang River. For more than 300 years during the Tang and Song dynasties, the two regions had to pay tribute to the ruling class, or even 20,000 feet a year. Later, due to the excessive deforestation by the court officials in successive dynasties, soil erosion caused southern Hunan to become a red soil arid zone, and the once prosperous sericulture production disappeared invisibly. The survival of silkworm "live by water and grass", along the Xiangjiang River, to the Dongting Lake area. At the beginning of Yuan Dynasty, cotton planting was rapidly promoted. Yueyang, Changde, Yiyang and other areas along Dongting Lake were very important silk and cotton producing areas in China. The silkworm, wood and cotton bases along Dongting Lake, such as Yueyang, Changde and Yiyang, are important guarantees for the success of Hunan embroidery.

historical origin

Hunan embroidery has a long history, which can be traced back to the Spring and Autumn Period and the Warring States Period 2000 years ago. From the large number of embroidery unearthed from Chu Tomb of Changsha Warring States Period and Mawangdui Tomb of Western Han Dynasty, we can see that the local embroidery skills in Hunan had reached a surprising height at that time. In 1958, the exquisite patterns of dragon and Phoenix embroidery and the delicate embroidery techniques found in the Chu tomb in Changsha have long been amazing to the world.

In 1972, more than 40 pieces of embroidery clothes were unearthed from Mawangdui Western Han tomb in Changsha. This shows that the local embroidery in Hunan, that is, Hunan embroidery, has developed to a higher level in the Western Han Dynasty, more than 2100 years ago. "The brilliant Chu embroidery and Mawangdui Han embroidery are not only a chapter full of pride and pride in the history of Chinese embroidery, but also the source of the original development of Hunan embroidery."

On the basis of Hunan folk embroidery, Hunan embroidery also absorbed the advantages of Su embroidery, Guangdong embroidery, Beijing embroidery and other embroidery systems, and developed into a rising star of the Qing Dynasty embroidery art garden. Hunan embroidery is developed on the basis of Hunan folk embroidery. Hunan folk can embroider very early. During the Jiaqing period of the Qing Dynasty, there were many women engaged in embroidery in Changsha County. In the 24th year of Guangxu (1898), Wu Hanchen, the son of embroiderer Hu Lianxian, opened the first self-embroidery and self-selling Wu Caixia Embroidery Workshop in Changsha. The works are exquisite and widely circulated. Hunan embroidery is famous throughout the country. During the Guangxu period, Ningxiang painter Yang Shizhuo advocated Hunan folk embroidery. He went deep into embroidery workshops for a long time and drew embroidery manuscripts. He also created a variety of stitches and improved the level of Hunan embroidery art. At the end of Guangxu period, Hunan folk embroidery developed into a unique embroidery technology system, and became a handicraft commodity with independent style and strong local color into the market. Professor Tian Zibing pointed out in his book The History of Dyeing and Weaving in China: "The history of Hunan embroidery was generally believed to have originated in the early years of the Qing Dynasty and came out the latest. However, since the exquisite embroidery of Han Dynasty, such as silk longevity embroidery, silk cloud embroidery and Luo Qidi Xinshi embroidery unearthed from No. 1 Tomb of Mawangdui in Changsha in 1972, a new understanding of its history has been gained. It can be said that Hunan embroidery formed a unique style of embroidery system in the late Qing Dynasty. And the name "Hunan embroidery" began to be known in the world at this time.

In the 1930s, the output value of Hunan embroidery reached 800,000 silver yuan, and one third of its products were exported. In the 24 years of the Republic of China (1935), Hunan embroidery occupied half of the space in the section "Embroidery" of the General Report of the West Lake Exposition.

Since the founding of New China, the development of Hunan embroidery has gone through three stages: the "golden period" of the 1950s. With the help of Chairman Mao Zedong's visit to the "East Wind" of the Soviet Union with a large number of Hunan embroidery products such as Stalin Embroidery, Hunan embroidery products ushered in the first export climax for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe. After the breakdown of Sino-Soviet relations, the export of Hunan embroidery was once hindered and production fell to a low ebb.

In the early 1970s, it entered the period of industrial adjustment. Hunan embroidery for daily use and decorative embroidery have been developed simultaneously. At the same time, the export to the Soviet Union has been transferred to the entrepot trade with Hong Kong. In the early 1980s, the situation of "four major manufacturers of Hunan embroidery" emerged, forming a second development climax. Until 1987, Hunan embroidery was the largest export earner in Hunan light industry.

In the early 1990s, it entered the period of "contention among hundreds of schools of thought". With the rise of township enterprises and individual economy, there are only one of the "four major enterprises", and the rise and fall of enterprises become normal.

At the beginning of the 21st century, Hunan embroidery was listed in the first batch of intangible cultural heritage protection projects in China. Around 2012, the embroidery industry in Hunan recovered again, but for a short time.

Production situation

Hunan embroidery has a history of more than 2500 years. In the early Western Han Dynasty, the embroidery technology in Hunan was highly developed, but it disappeared inexplicably after the Han Dynasty. Until the Guangxu period of the Qing Dynasty, the Pingjiang embroidery girl Li Yihui pioneered the method of blending needles, which made the Hunan embroidery rise again. In 1898, the opening of "Wu Caixia" embroidery village in Changsha marked the way for Hunan embroidery to be commercialized.

In 2008, the annual output value of Hunan embroidery exceeded 500 million yuan, with an annual total export volume of more than 1.2 million pieces (sets), driving nearly 6,000 rural employees. Among them, Xingsha Xiangxiu Industrial Park has introduced more than 60 related enterprises, more than 500 business operators have been completed, forming an annual production and sales scale of 1 billion yuan, and driving about 30,000 employees.

In 2010, the total output value of Xiangxiu embroidery in Shaping reached 150 million yuan.

In 2010, the annual output value of Shapingxiang embroidery reached 100 million yuan.

In 2012, there were more than 100 related enterprises in Hunan embroidery industry, with 8 Chinese and 12 Hunan arts and crafts masters, nearly 200,000 employees, with an annual output value of over 500 million yuan.

Product Honor

In 1910, Hunan embroidery was praised at the Nanyang Trade Promotion Conference as "ink without trace" and "letters, hairpins and thread without trace".

In 1995, Shaping Town of Changsha was awarded the title of "Township of Hunan Embroidery in China" by the State Council.

In 2006, Hunan embroidery was selected as the first national intangible cultural heritage list.

In 2006, Shaping was awarded the protection and inheritance base of intangible cultural heritage of Hunan embroidery country.

On March 28, 2011, the former General Administration of Quality Supervision and Inspection approved the implementation of the protection of geographical indication products for "Hunan Embroidery".

In 2014, Hunan Xiangxiu Research Institute was listed by the Ministry of Culture as the second national demonstration base for the productive protection of intangible cultural heritage.
