Xinjiang Hami embroidery, often referred to as "Jiang Embroidery", is very popular in the Hami area of eastern Xinjiang. Since ancient times, Hami has been a major town on the Silk Road. It has been a fusion of Eastern and Western cultures.
In 1978, archaeologists discovered a lot of exquisite woollen clothing in the late Bronze Age tombs of 3,200 years history in Hami Fort. Among them, there is an embroidered piece, with a length of 58.5 cm, a width of 55 cm, color plain pattern, large triangular pattern composed of small triangles embroidered with yellow and blue on the red bottom. It has excellent craftsmanship, definitely the best of woollen fabric. It's also the earliest hair embroidery products in the age of domestic archaeological discoveries, and the earliest commercial silk embroidery objects discovered so far.
In 1699, Hami King invited artisans from Beijing to build the city and palace. All the officials and princess of Hami’s costumes were directly allocated by the Chinese Qing Dynasty government. Admiring the beauty of Su embroidery and Jing embroidery, the emperor invited dozens of embroidered workers to teach local women the embroidery skills
Therefore, Hami embroidery has become the "peony" in the traditional embroidery garden in Xinjiang
