Ming

China’s Ming dynasty (1368-1644) turned China into a global superpower, influencing the world with culture, trade, literature and the arts. Ming porcelain is amongst the finest in the world and this combined with the prominence of silk manufacturing of the time, has inspired a wide range of modern designers.
