About the Exhibition

HKDI Gallery Presents a tribute to the beautiful fibre that has long been a renowned Chinese heritage: mulberry silk. Presented by HKDI's Department of Fashion and Image Design, in collaboration with the China National Silk Museum, one of the largest textile museums in the world, this fascinating display provides an insightful journey through the millennia-long evolution of China’s silk culture and its global impact. Exhibits range from ancient Chinese silkwork designs to contemporary fashion, weaving looms, animations, photographs, and more.
