Some art is simply for decoration. Some art is meant to encourage contemplation or provoke a sentiment, and some art is just pretty. However many forms of art are also functional. Some arts we live in, some arts we eat, and some arts we wear. Textiles are fabrics or cloths and are one of the oldest forms of art practiced by many cultures. Perhaps no one, however, has appreciated the art form of textiles quite as long as the Chinese. Examples of truly artistic textiles going beyond simple rugs or shirts date back in China nearly to the Stone Age. Chinese textiles have a deep history in Asian culture but were actually amongst the most powerful forces in human history as well. No kidding. It’s amazing what a good outfit can do.
