Imagine yourself in early 14th century China, at the height of the Yuan dynasty. Surrounded by the wisdom of Confucianism, the aromas of exotic spices, flourishing international trade, and exquisite calligraphy, you would likely have much to explore.
However, one of the ubiquitous features of medieval China that would not escape your notice, no matter where you went, is XiaBu fabric.
The history of XiaBu is inextricably linked with the history of the Chinese people and their culture. In essence, XiaBu is a type of traditional, handmade Ramie fabric which is known as ‘China grass’ around the world.
