n   Nanjing Brocade -- It refers to the incredibly beautiful brocade made in Nanjing, capital city of Jiangsu Province. A delicate and flossy piece of brocade that feels just like soft clouds. The history of Nanjing Brocade can be traced back to the three kingdoms period (220-280).

Beijing -- A metropolis in northern China and the capital of the People's Republic of China. Beijing is recognized as the political, educational, and cultural center of China, while Shanghai and Hong Kong predominate in economic fields. Few cities in the world besides Beijing have served as the political and cultural centre of an area as immense as China for so long. The Encyclopædia Britannica describes it as "one of the world's great cities," and declares that the city has been an integral part of China’s history for centuries; there is scarcely a major building of any age in Beijing that doesn't have at least some national historical significance.
