In ancient China, there were various themes and forms of dyeing and weaving patterns, including animal
patterns, flower patterns and geometric patterns,formed their own unique style and artistic characteristics. With the
development of times, the progress of society and the change of aesthetic concept,the style and characteristics of
dyeing and weaving patterns have also undergone a long process of evolution. Before the Sui and Tang dynasties,
China’s dyeing and weaving patterns were mainly in the period of animal patterns. After the Sui and Tang dynasties,
it entered the flower pattern period. The use of floral patterns for decoration did not start from the tang dynasty,For
example, the joying pattern of Han dynasty, the honeysuckle pattern of six dynasties and so on. However, due to the
influence and restriction of politics, economy, religion, philosophy, folk customs and other factors, flower patterns
can only play a secondary role. The evolution of traditional Chinese dyeing and weaving patterns is a process of
developing, broadening and deepening of human life, as well as the development of human culture from low to high,
from simple to rich.
