Yunjin is a kind of brocade, a type of richly decorative shuttle-woven fabric, often made in colored silks with gold and silver threads. Its elegant and refined design with beautiful colors is reminiscent of clouds in the sky, so it is named "Yunjin" (Cloud Brocade or Yun Brocade).


Yun Brocade of Nanjing is a remarkable masterpiece of Chinese traditional culture. The traditional hand-weaving technology of Yun Brocade has a long history of about 1500 years, which has been listed as an Intangible Cultural Heritage. It is reputed by the public as "the oriental treasure" and "a Chinese miracle".
