called 双喜紋 Shuangxiwen or double happiness mark.

Thank you so much I. Nagy.

I was really hoping for a name. Did you mean there are 15 names of the brothers, if so would it be possible to get the names? And am i correct in assuming it is 19th century (probably late?).

I would be happy to paypal a donation for your time on any help or information, I am surprised there is a donation link for this site! It has been extremely helpful!!!

This embroidery was given as a commemorative present not necessarily from brothers from the same blood. They might have been cousins, friends or even members belonging to the same
school,association etc.
The heading 愚弟 literally translates Humble Brothers.
Here are the names from the first two 3 name
groups,
Wang Xi Hui, Xu Shou Ren
Wang De Ru, Xu Zu Shou
Xuan Kui, Chen Jia Jin
etc.
The first two Wangs are sharing the same family
name.The two Xus are written each with different characters.

The inscriptions on the two sashes,
Left,
萬福攸同  Endless blessings last all your life
Right,
千祥雲集  Gather thousand of auspicious clouds
      (over you)
