Of China's more than 1,300 national-level intangible cultural heritage items, close to 200 relate to textiles, according to a report released at the third China Textile Intangible Cultural Heritage Conference in Kunming, capital of Southwest China's Yunnan province, in early November. More than 30 of them are about embroidery, ranging from the four major schools originating from Jiangsu, Sichuan, Guangdong and Hunan provinces to lesser-known types popular in other regions or prevailing in ethnic groups' areas.
