Feeling the heat? So did the Manchu rulers of Qing dynasty China (1644–1911). Their hot-weather clothing was more elegant than tank tops and shorts, however. For summer their elaborate robes were of lightweight silk gauze, an open weave with the warp threads twisted around the wefts. Gauze is not only cool but shimmery, providing a good background for embroidery and woven patterns.
