Gambiered Guangdong silk also known as Heijiao Chou, has a history of at least 500 years. Its old-fashioned manufacturing process requires up to six months and a complexity of methods, including dip-dyeing in dioscorea cirrhosa extract for 35 times and then spreading the silk on river mud and afterwards a direct exposure to sun.

After that, it will be another 3-6 months before the silk can be finally used for making clothes. That makes gambiered Guangdong silk one of the most expensive silk. Nowadays designers make full use of it and reveal the folk wisdom inside.
