Kesi is not only a technique but also a kind of art. In ancient China, an inch of Kesi was worth the same as an ounce of gold. It is done with raw silk as the warp and boiled-off silk as the weft. With a combination of partial weft (vertical) threads attached to full warp (horizontal) threads, it differs from other woven silk goods that have full warp and weft threads. This is a form of weaving patch by patch. It is necessary to make frequent changes of the shuttles (i.e. threads of different colors), and a small piece of work requires thousands of changes to finish.
