In 1906, when French Catholic missionaries came to Haimen (today's Jiaojiang), they taught the local church's nuns and orphans the Western embroidery technique of cutwork and drawnwork. That's how Taizhou embroidery was developed, integrating the essence of the East and the West.

At the Taisilk Embroidery Museum, tourists can see an old embroidery item from the church. Taizhou embroidery experienced its heyday in the 1990s, when local factories made articles of daily use, such as quilt covers and table clothes, as well as clothing, including pajamas, shirts and skirts.

The craft is also used in today's cultural creative products, with exquisite patterns on silk items.
