Issue Time:2017-11-22

    The history of human clothes can be traced back to 100,000 to 500,000 years ago. As early as the late Stone Age, there was a fabric in the Middle East. From 6,000 years ago, the bottom of the pottery unearthed at the Banpo site has fabric prints; the silk ribbons and ramie cloth unearthed at the Qian Shan Yang site have been dating back 4700 years. Neolithic textile products are mainly all kinds of short fiber fabric. These fabrics have hand-painted, textured, embroidered patterns or simple patterns.

    China is one of the earliest countries in the world to produce textiles, the most famous of which is silk. After the advent of BC, Chinese silk fabrics passed through the famous "Silk Road" to Europe and played a positive role in the communication of the economy and culture between the East and the West. India produced the finely printed Mazinger tulle in 300 BC; Egyptian linen and wool-based jacquard tapestries from the 3rd to the 12th centuries; and velvet began to be produced in Persia and Italy after the 12th century. The first half of the 20th century, nylon, acrylic, polyester and other synthetic fibers have been put into industrial production, because of its better textile properties and economic value, the scale of production continues to expand.
