    Embroideries in Guangzhou, Fushan, Nanhai, Panyu and Shunde are referred to as Guangzhou embroidery. It had superb skill in Tang Dynasty, till Ming and Qing Dynasty it became one of the four well-known embroideries in China. The traditional Guangzhou embroidery is so simple and full of folk taste that recalls strong flavor of rural. Modern Guangzhou embroidery is elegant and generous, lays stress on absorbing skills from all kinds of paintings and has higher artistry. Tradition and modern come down in one continuous.
