Compared to other traditional embroideries, such as the works from Suzhou and Hunan, Beijing embroidery is known for its rich hued colors, descent patterns and luxury decorations. Not only gold and silver yarn, but genuine jewelry was widely used in the latter group.
In 2014, the crafts were listed as a national intangible cultural heritage, and carried forward both inheritors and modern designers.
One is D.Rita, a brand specialized in making couture designs with Chinese embroideries.
