Chinese Armor: Ancient Chinese armor was very elaborate. First starting in the Shang and Zhou dynasties, many of the armor was made from hard lacquered materials and leather layered and stitched together in a lamellar style.

9 Knot Tying: Chinese knotting is a popular Folk art decoration that started between AD. These knots were used as charms and embellishment on clothing and then later in the 20 th century as buttons
