Located in No. 244, on the Tuting East Road in Jianye District of Nanjing, Nanjing Brocade Museum is a unique national culture relic with profound culture, collecting different delicate brocades from the Yuan (1,206 A.D.-1,368 A.D.), the Ming (1,368 A.D.-1,644 A.D.) and the Qing (1,616 A.D.-1,911 A.D) Dynasties, which functioned as the imperial tribute in ancient times with a long history more than 1,580 years.

Nanjing brocade varies in types with the improvement of weaving technology, which are more and more favored by people for its delicacy and magnificence.
