Abstract


Based on the analysis and investigation on a large number of striped and checked patterns in silk fabric of the Republic of China (1912-1949) and some relevant historical records, this paper mainly reviews the types of striped and checked patterns in silk fabric of the Republic of China. It also discusses the use of weave design in striped and checked patterns, and points out that striped and checked patterns turned to be one of the most popular patterns in silk fabric during this period, only ranking second to floral pattern. The influence of western design, changes in fashion and technological innovations are main reasons for this transition.
