There was a vain emperor who just loved
clothes.

More than ruling his land wisely, he seemed
interested only in changing into a new suit

every hour.
He would visit the theater and go out in his
carriage so that the people would get to see

his new suits every day.
How he loved to show off his new clothes to
all the people!

Instead of discussing with his ministers the
state of the kingdom, he was more interested

in their opinion of his clothes!
So, my dear ministers, what do you think of
my new dress?

Isn’t it better than the one I wore yesterday?
Your majesty, it is absolutely wonderful.
What a beautiful design!
The stories of the emperor’s love for clothes
spread far and wide, and reached the ears

of two scoundrels.
The cunning fellows landed up at the emperor’s
court one day, and asked to meet the emperor.And

what work do you have with the emperor?
He is a busy man and cannot be meeting everyone.Oh,
we are very fine weavers, sir, and can weave

clothes like none other in the kingdom.
We have heard that the emperor loves clothes,
and have come to make him a suit with our

beautiful cloth.The emperor has got so many
suits made of so many different cloths, what

is so different in your cloth?
Well, you see, our cloth is so light and delicate,
that it is almost invisible.

In fact, it is visible only to those who are
fit to do the jobs they are doing, and fools

most certainly cannot see our cloth.When the
courtier heard this, he rushed to tell the

emperor about this amazing new cloth that
the two weavers were talking about.Fools

cannot see it, you say, and it is invisible
to those not suited for their jobs?

This I must see.
Go, fetch them immediately.
If what they say is true, then I will who
know among my ministers and courtiers should

be removed from their posts.The courtier ran
to bring the two weavers to the emperor.Come

on, you two, the emperor shall see you now,
and your cloth better be as good as you claim

it to be.The two weavers were presented before
the emperor, where he sat with his ministers.So,

you weave a special cloth, is it?
Yes, your majesty.
It is a cloth that none other can weave.
Very well.
You will be provided with everything you need,
and you must spin this cloth here in the palace.

Here is a bag of gold to start with, and you
can ask for anything else that you might want.Of

course, your majesty.
We will spin the cloth here and make the most
splendid suit for you, a suit which no one

would have ever seen.The emperor ordered two
looms to be set up in a room.

The weavers asked for golden thread and the
finest of silks, all of which they hid away

in their bags, and pretended to be working
away at the looms.

In the meanwhile, the emperor was getting
more and more curious to know what the weavers

were doing, and decided to send his trusted
minister to have a look.

Minister, you are one of my most senior ministers
and among the most sensible, so I know I can

trust you and your judgment.
I want you to go and look at the cloth the
weavers are weaving and let me know how it

is coming along.
The other ministers might not be able to see
the cloth, you understand?

Of course, your majesty, I know exactly what
you are trying to say.So the minister went

to the room where the weavers were busy working.Oh,
come in, come in, sir.

Have a look at this beautiful and intricate
design we have woven.

And the colors And sir, could you please make
arrangements for some more gold, thread and

silk to be provided?, look how vibrant they
are.

Don’t you like it, sir?
We have worked really, really hard.
Er, oh, oh yes.
I have never seen such beautiful workmanship.
I must tell the emperor.
Carry on, carry on making the wonderful material.Er,
yes, yes, of course.

Once there was a vain emperor who just loved

Er, oh, oh yes. I have never seen such beautiful

workmanship. I must tell the emperor. Carry
on, carry on making the wonderful material.Er,

yes, yes, of course. (to himself) Good heavens
I I cannot admit to anyone that I cannot see

anything! Are my spectacles not right, or
am I an idiot and not fit to do my job? The

minister went back to the emperor, having
decided to not mention that he could see no

cloth being woven. After so many years of
serving the emperor, he did not want it to

be known that he was not suited for his job.
No, no, that would never do!Well, minister,

what do you think of the cloth those weavers
are working on?Oh, your Majesty, I don’t

have words to describe it. The colors and
design are like nothing I have ever seen.It

is that good, is it? Do you think I should
wear a suit of that cloth to the grand procession

I shall be leading soon? Of course, your Majesty.
Everyone will be looking at you.The weavers

continued pretending to work on the looms.
They asked for more gold thread and more of

the finest silk available, and of course put
all this away in their bags. They asked for

more candles, pretending to work late into
the night. Their scissors went snip snip snip

in the air, needles weaving in and out of
imaginary cloth with no threads in them. After

some time, the emperor again grew curious
about the new cloth the weavers were weaving.I

think I will now send my trusted courtier
to see how those two are progressing. The

emperor sends summons for the courtier to
come.Courtier,

go and see how my new suit is coming along
and come back and tell me everything in detail.So

the courtier made his way to the room where
the weavers were busy

on their looms.Welcome sir, you have come
to see the emperor’s suit? We are sure neither

you nor the emperor will be disappointed.
We are working very hard to make sure it is

ready for the emperor to wear for the procession.
And how do you like it, sir? Have you ever

seen such a magnificent design or such a perfect
blend of colors? The courtier was as confused

as the minister. He could see absolutely nothing,
and admitting that would mean he was an idiot

and not fit to do the job he was doing. Like
the minister, he had no intention of being

labelled a fool.I must say it is an amazing
suit, absolutely befitting of our great ruler.

And you are right, I have never seen such
marvelous craftsmanship.The courtier listened

carefully to how the weavers were describing
the suit, because he did not know what he

could tell the emperor otherwise. How could
he describe something he could not see at

all? So courtier, what do you think of the
suit? The courtier described in great detail

the pattern and colors, exactly as the weavers
had told him. He certainly did not want to

admit he could see nothing, as that would
make him an idiot in everyone’s eyes. Ah

well, I think tomorrow I shall go and see
the suit for myself. Everyone seems to be

praising it so much, I can’t wait to see
it for myself. The next day, the emperor went

to the room where the weavers were pretending
to be busy weaving. Up and down their hands

flew, while their eyes were fixed on the looms,
concentrating so hard on the imaginary cloth.

Oh, your majesty, we have been waiting to
show you your new suit. It is so beautiful,

even better than we had expected. People will
be talking of nothing but your suit at the

procession. Here, have a look at the jacket
and the trousers. I am sure they will fit

your majesty like a second skin. And the cloak!
Isn’t it magnificent? They are all so light

and fragile, like a spider’s web! The emperor
looked hard, but he could see nothing! I am

the emperor of the land, and if I say I cannot
see anything, my people will think I am not

fit to rule them! That cannot happen! For
fear of being considered a fool, the emperor

also went along with what the others had said,
and greatly admired the suit.

The day of the procession, the weavers pretended
to help the emperor wear the suit, pretending

to handle it very carefully. Come, your majesty,
stand before this mirror. Here, please wear

the jacket and trousers. The weavers pretended
to make the emperor wear the jacket and trousers.

They pretended to nip the trousers in a little
at the waist, straighten out the collar of

the jacket, and make some other adjustments.
They then stood back to admire their handiwork.

Ah, that is such a wonderful fit, don’t
you think so your majesty? And the colors

look so good on you. Now let me adjust the
cloak. There! That’s done. What do you have

to say, your majesty? Er, well, I must say
you have done a great job. Like you say, it

is an excellent fit, and the design and colors
are outstanding! The emperor stood in front

of the mirror, and though he could still not
see any clothes, he pretended to admire them

and himself while striking different poses
before the mirror. Well, your majesty, it

is time for you to make an appearance and
lead the procession. The courtier came forward

and pretended to hold the long train, and
followed the emperor out. All the people in

the land had heard about the magical quality
of the suit, and were waiting curiously and

impatiently to see the emperor wearing it.
Finally, when the emperor made an entry, the

crowd became absolutely silent on seeing him.
And then suddenly, the voice of a small child

was heard. But he is wearing nothing! Listen
to the voice of an innocent child, he speaks

the truth. All the people then started shouting.
He is wearing nothing, he is wearing nothing!

The emperor was extremely embarrassed. He
now understood how the two weavers had made

a fool of him as well as his ministers and
courtiers. All he could do was lead the procession

as he was with as much dignity as he could.
The weavers, of course, had already escaped

with all the gold, thread and silks the emperor
had given them, and were never seen or heard

of again.
