Emperor's Silk Brocade Tote
Tell A Friend
Supple, woven-silk brocades with vivid designs and rich colors—like the fabric composing this elegant tote—were developed in the Song dynasty. Featuring a traditional Song dynasty brocade design, this zippered-closure tote is fully lined. Two interior pockets, one zippered. 100% silk brocade. Made in China.
The fabric of choice for Ming and Qing emperors, vibrantly patterned and beautifully woven Chinese brocade apparel was considered a symbol of status and wealth. Our Freer Gallery of Art curates a large number of Chinese silk brocades from the Song and Qing dynasties. A gift to the nation from Charles Lang Freer, the Freer Gallery contains the world's most important collections of Asian art.
