Flows of people, objects and knowledge went back and forth between Europe and China across centuries, and are witnessed by a wealth of China-related cultural heritage preserved in European Institutions.
Discover the interesting stories that are told in digitized collections available on Europeana, carefully curated and selected by the Editorial Team of EU funded PAGODE – Europeana China project.
Today’s gallery, co-curated together with colleagues of the European Fashion Heritage Association, is about “Chinese influences, Western fashion“: These material memories of fashion, furniture and craftsmanship demonstrate how motifs and objects from China took over the West, elegantly influencing its tastes and production.
