when people walk into the Expo Park, the National Pavilion of the host country is undoubtedly the most shocking picture of Qingming Riverside, which is magnified hundreds of times. This picture shows the prosperity of Bianjing, the capital of the Northern Song Dynasty, and the most strange thing is that all the characters in the picture are alive, The modern animation techniques full of creativity make the urban and rural areas, markets, waterways and other scenes in the picture vividly show in front of people’s eyes. The changes of day and night add a lot of humanity to this famous painting which vividly records the folk life of Chinese cities in the 12th century

of course, the giant picture can’t be taken away, but it’s no pity that Jiangsu SOHO 1nternational Group, as a franchised manufacturer and retailer of the 2010 Shanghai World Expo, has developed a limited edition World Expo franchised product, the silk tapestry painting Qingming Riverside. The project is the world’s first invention patent “high density full imaging simulation color silk weaving technology”, breaking through the limitations of traditional brocade technology, using the world’s most advanced electronic jacquard equipment, and with 100% high-quality natural silk fine weaving, from the selection of raw materials, process design, texture production after dozens of processes. The silk tapestry painting “Qingming Riverside Scene” is in line with the theme of the China Pavilion of the World Expo, and has become a treasure of the Ministry of Commerce as a national gift to foreign guests

cheongsam made for the wives of heads of state

in this Expo, the 60 cheongsam made for the wives of heads of state by the organizers are all designed by famous fashion designers in China. The color and style of the 60 cheongsam are different, and they also have their own characteristics in fabric production. These cheongsam are made of Kesi fabric by Suzhou West folk Kesi embroidery factory. There are color ink painting patterns on Kesi, and the transition between depth and depth should be expressed by Kesi. Kesi technology is extremely complex, so it has been impossible to realize machine Kesi for thousands of years. Kesi is a traditional decorative textile in China, known as “the saint of weaving”, and its manufacturing process is also extremely fine. 1n ancient times, it took a weaver ten years or even more to make a Kesi Dragon Robe. 1n the song and Yuan Dynasties, it was designated as one of the Royal fabrics. Because the weaving process is extremely delicate and complex, even the most skilled weavers can only weave one inch and two cents a day at most. 1t takes more than 10 years to finish weaving an emperor’s Kesi costume. Therefore, Kesi is known as “an inch of Kesi is an inch of gold”

according to the requirements of the organizer, the 60 sets of fabrics must be different in style and have the effect of ink painting. 1n order to reach the production level of Song Dynasty Kesi at its peak, the weaving staff adopted the Song Dynasty weaving method in the whole process. There are up to 16 processes, such as warp line, drawing warp line, sley setting, knot bending and back axle warp embedding. The fabric produced by this process will not fade and wrinkle after repeated washing. There are hundreds of shuttles in various colors hung in front of each Kesi machine. During Kesi weaving, the weavers first install the silk thread on the machine, then insert the drawing, and then use the silk thread to start Kesi according to the drawing. The raw material used is high-grade white silk treated by 120 ~ C high temperature. These white silk is twisted into six pieces, which can not only make Kesi stronger, but also make the fabric softer and more comfortable. 1t is said that a cheongsam, apart from the cost of design and materials, plus the collection value, costs nearly 100000 yuan

The moisture regain and thermal diffusion rate of this cool fiber are better than that of ordinary fiber, and there are many kinds of compound natural minerals, jade, etc. imported. Wearing this kind of fabric, the air conditioner can be raised by 1 ° C. According to statistics, it can save 5% to 6% of electricity cost and reduce carbon emission by 0.62kg.
