During the Ming Dynasty, Suzhou became a thriving center for silk industries and handicrafts. Flourishing painting art in Wu area helped the further development of Suzhou embroidery. Embroiders reproduced the paintings using needles. These works were so vivid and elegant as to be called "paintings by needle" or "unmatchable even by the nature."
