The linked-pearl pattern on fabric is a key to study on the transformation of the technique from weaving warp-faced patterns to weft-faced patterns in ancient China. However, the previous studies on the linked-pearl pattern on fabric were not very clear, and led to much misunderstanding. Some researchers believed that Chinese weavers did not master the technique of weft-faced patterns until Persian merchants introduced the brocades with a pattern featuring stringed ball into China along the Silk Road. Based on the studies on historical materials and archeological discoveries of the linked-pearl pattern on fabric, we hold that there are positive connections among the linked-pearl pattern, the technique of weaving weft-faced patterns and the draw loom. The dissemination of the linked-pearl pattern prompted the development of pattern design and the wide application of weft-faced pattern on fabric, even the invention of the draw loom which accelerated the development of textile technology in ancient China.
