Product description

Silk blend brocade woven with gold, inspired by a historical pattern from the Byzantine period. A good choice for authentic Medieval clothing and decorations as well as modern interiors and contemporary fashions. Stunning brocade fabric made of genuine silk and rayon with a woven pattern.

Pattern & Origin

Historical fabric reproduction of a 12th century Oriental damask. The textile is most likely of Byzantine origin. It displays a strong Persian influence and the continued popularity of round medallions featuring paired animals (typically birds and lions).

This particular pattern depicts a pair of standing falcons, their wings spread, facing the tree of life with heart-shaped leaves and striking blossoms.

The original pattern is discussed by Otto von Falke in his book Decorative Silks.

This pattern reconstruction is the intellectual property of SARTOR BOHEMIA.

Fabric

This historical fabric is a gold-woven brocade with real silk, an eye-catcher in brilliant hues with different weaves alternating to produce a tactile surface that delights the touch. The Jacquard weave features a pure silk warp and a weft of rayon and golden lurex. The use of premium materials yields a brocade that is sturdy yet soft, fine to the touch, and breathable.

Uses

Reproductions of period brocades such as this are perfect for sewing historical costumes and also bring something special to modern interiors or contemporary fashions.

We recommend lining this brocade with a natural material that breathes, such as silk lining or fine linen.

Care

We recommend dry cleaning this fabric at a reliable dry cleaner. Iron on the back side on a synthetic setting.

FAQ

Do your historical reproductions ever repeat?

Rarely! We produce reproductions of historical fabrics as limited editions. We want to guarantee a certain authenticity to all owners of historical costumes and decorations. We recommend that you buy these fabrics while they are in stock, as this is the only way to secure them for your project aside from custom ordering.

What is a limited edition?

Limited editions are fabrics of exceptional quality or patterns that have been designed and produced exclusively under the Sartor brand. As a rule, they do not repeat and are therefore only available while supplies last. Don't miss your chance to own a true original.

What is the smallest amount of fabric I can order?

The minimum fabric order is a length of 20 cm.

Are your historical reproductions suitable for modern use?

Of course! Historical patterns are characterized by high-quality aesthetic workmanship with an emphasis on elegance and harmony, which make them timeless works of art. They are suitable for modern interiors, where they bring an element of originality (try a picture, a pillow). In fashion, they excel in simple, even minimalist, garments, handbags and other accessories.

Do you ship abroad?

Yes. We ship worldwide. The price of shipping is automatically calculated at checkout before payment after you select the country of delivery and the preferred carrier. If you do not find your country in the dropdown list, please contact us. You will find a rough overview of shipping costs in our shipping and payment terms.
