|Abstract:||Jia¯o-chou and Xiang-yun-sha¯ are two types
of Chinese silks that use eco-friendly vegetable dyeing and iron-rich mudcoated
techniques to create a unique texture and two-tone color—shiny
black on one side and reddish brown on the other. Mud-coated silks,
which have been around since the fifth century, are making a comeback
in the fashion world as high-end, luxury textiles.
