Clothing in the Song Dynasty

This is a men's robe of the Song Dynasty. The camel yellow silk-lined robe blended with several colors, including blue, green, black and white etc, all of which contrast wonderfully to another. The patterns are vivid and the handicraft is delicate. The most exalting is the robe is kept integrated, making it a high-quality work of all excavated silk garments. The patterns are very like to those on textiles of the 10th-13th century Persia and Byzantium, the decorative patterns like overlapping coins, turtle backs and stringed pearls symbolize wealth, longevity and good luck coming together.
