Product description

Product description

The pattern has both animal and plant motives. Between palm trees there are pairs of eagles and special medieval beasts "scytale". Unlike the eagles, they have paws instead of claws, a snake tail, long ears and stunningly decorated back. According to the medieval bestiary, they used their scales to stun the viewer, who, fascinated by their beauty, became an easy prey. The original fabric is either of Sicilian or Spanish origin. There are several extant textiles with this pattern. They can be found at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London or in the Boston Art Museum.

This fabric is handmade from high quality materials - pure mulberry silk and metallic threads plated by real gold! This is not the widespread commercially available lurex, which is merely a plastic imitation of golden thread. With our high-quality metallic threads, the fabric is softer, finer and more breathable. Moreover the gold will not loose its shine nor turn black in time.

This lampassette is also unique for its fair trade origin. It is our pioneer on the fair trade path. This fabric woven by hand about half a meter per day (20 inches) comes from a loom specifically constructed for Sartor needs and in direct cooperation with "our" Indian weaver Allauddin. We are skipping all the intermediaries and going all the way down to the village level. This way we can assure that everything we pay goes directly and only to the weaver's family.

Note: Given the technology process of weaving this textile (handwoven fabric based on a hand drawn design), minor errors in weave may occur. These incidental imperfections are not considered as defects but rather a proof of a hand-crafted product.

Care

We recommend dry cleaning this fabric at a reliable dry cleaner. In our test of how to wash silk this fabric stood up to gentle hand washing. If you risk hand washing, use lukewarm water and a delicate detergent for woolens; do not wring or squeeze dry; block dry on a flat surface. Dry iron on the back on the lowest 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.
