Abstract

In China, cloth making became more than just an economic activity. The female cloth maker was an important cultural image in early imperial China. Writers of various persuasions agreed that making cloth is a highly virtuous female activity, although they disagreed as to why this particular kind of labor is good. The moralization of cloth making became an important component of early Chinese female identity. Influential male writers and women of different social strata deployed this image for powerful rhetorical effect.
