Brocade is the most intricate stitched fabric, sometimes called the `blind stitch` because the practitioners gradually lost their sight over the years. Making brocade for someone you love is one of oldest Chinese traditions. The sentiment that flowed from the endlessly repeated stitches that over time went to form a valuable and much used article that accompanied someone through their life was symbolic of the love that one felt for them. Mothers made brocade slippers for their children, wives for husbands, and girls for their lovers… In the beginning of the last century my wife`s great aunt made shoes for village children and they were called 1000 layer shoes because each stitch was felt to be a part of her very large heart. We have a pair of slippers made by her hand, incredibly intricate and frail to the touch, but still alive with the glow of history and custom. Today hand made brocade is hard to find. I hope all the good traditions of the past will not suffer the fate of the brocade slipper.

Torsten Richter "The fate of the brocade slipper" would be a great title,too.
Not necessarily for this picture,but in general.
A book with that title? I would read it.
A film? I would be watching.

Dana Winkelman Jared. You have paid a remarkable homage to the art. It is very uplifting and I especially like the woman's face that gels the overall feeling of the image. Peaceful and a joy to look at. All the best. Dana...

Aleksandar Budjevac everything is sadly devoured the market, even those values, humanity and as you say the heart in handmade items. The true value of these we can see, only in the third world, if they exist or not in the war. Adorable work and review the details told. I have enjoyed and continue to read. Thank you.
