During the Tang and Song Dynasties, Chinese knots were heavily used in the decoration of clothing and utensils, which markedly evoked the trend; during the Ming and Qing Dynasties, there were various uses, names, and styles of Chinese knots, and the growth of Chinese knots reached a strong point. Knots are promoted by an ornament for an art.
Further sources of ties have also been invented in Chinese literary works (such as poetry, novels) and private letters. "Dream of Red Mansions" has made extensive explorations of this art. As the skills of older generations and the weaving patterns grow larger and larger, the signs of knotting have steadily evolved over the course of thousands of years. In the Qing dynasty, weaving finally broke through its pure folk position, and thus became a traditional art form recognized in Chinese society and was supreme.
