XIJING BAY CULTURE
刺绣的家乡
风调雨顺的太湖文化、风情万种的刺绣文化和历史悠久的水乡文化及典藏在各类文化脉络里的传奇故事。现代绣娘辈出,传承了镇湖特有的文化血脉。乡间邻里和谐,延续了江南传统民风民俗。蛟嘴角貌似“蛟龙的嘴角”,西京湾西端是观太湖夕阳西下瑰丽奇景的最佳地方,故俗称“蛟嘴”,故在此聚集的太湖渔民亦有“蛟嘴匠人”之称。“家家户户蚕桑地、闺阁家家架绣棚”,这便是对镇湖刺绣最真实的写照。从民间绣、双面绣到人物肖像绣,镇湖绣娘母教女、嫂教姑,毫无保留,耳濡目染。镇湖刺绣经久不衰、历久弥新,与绣娘一生平、光、齐、匀的生活艺术密不可分。
There is harmonious Taihu Lake culture, elegant embroidery culture, long established waterside culture and legends hidden in all sorts of cultural contexts. Modern embroidery girls come forth in large numbers, inheriting the unique cultural heritage of Zhenhu while harmonious neighborhood carries on traditional folk customs of south of the Yangtze River. Jiaozui Corner, resembling “the corner of the mouth of a dragon”, is the best place to enjoy breathtaking sunset of Taihu Lake in the west of Xijing Bay. The fishermen who gather here are known as “craftsmen of Jiaozui”. Well, to sum up the embroidery of Zhenhu, we must introduce the saying of “each and every family here breeds silkworms and grows mulberries, every girl installs embroidery machine in her room”.

“家家户户蚕桑地、闺阁家家架绣棚”,这便是对镇湖刺绣最真实的写照。从民间绣、双面绣到人物肖像绣,镇湖绣娘母教女、嫂教姑,毫无保留,耳濡目染。镇湖刺绣经久不衰、历久弥新,与绣娘一生平、光、齐、匀的生活艺术密不可分。

From folk embroidery, double-sided embroidery to portrait embroidery, every senior in Zhenhu will teach the young how to embroider wholeheartedly to pass on embroidery skills. The long lasting embroidery of Zhenhu is inseparable from the peaceful, smooth, even and uniform living philosophy of embroidery ladies.
