We were taken to this research institute as part of a day's excursion to Suzhou. It includes the ubiquitous shop which displays some exquisite work - from student to master embroiderer. We bought a double-sided piece which we managed to negotiate a hefty discount on(!). The piece was well packed and survived the journey home packed inside our suitcase. The mastery of the needlework has to be seen to be believed. It was not allowed to take photos in the institute - but there was not a postcard to be seen which demonstrated the work - surprising for the enterprising chinese! A visit not to be missed
