The padded applique embroidery technique was adopted for the motifs of phoenix and peony flowers on this item. In this category of embroidery, various appliques cut out of cotton cloth, gauze or twill are attached, mostly by glue with few stitches used, to the foundation fabric. The embroidered patterns are often padded with silk, fine linen or cotton. Cotton waddings were padded in the patterns of phoenix and peony flowers on this item, resulting in a relief-like effect.
