According to historical documents, people began to use raincoats way back in the Zhou Dynasty. These pieces of garments were traditionally made of Chinese silver grass, carefully chosen material for its smooth surface, hollow structure, and impermeable feature. Usually worn by fishermen, farmers, and rice pickers, these were elaborately made in various materials. After the Ming Dynasty, various versions of the capes were by Qing Dynasty emperors and officials. There were stringent rules on the use of the capes: yellow ones were exclusively for the emperor, red ones for princes and the highest court officials, as for the cyan ones they were usually worn by second-ranking officials.
