Product description

Product description

Smooth gold rondels contain paired winged lions with beautifully stylized manes. The space between medallions is occupied by paired griffins. In Central Asia, where this pattern originated, the lion signified military rank (shifting in seniority over various periods). The lion’s appearance here dovetails with Chinese and Byzantine heraldic tradition where it stands alongside the griffin and the eagle as a primary symbol of power and strength. It is evident that the depiction of lions and griffins is meant to denote bravery, strength, and military prowess.

The original textile fragment upon which our reproduction is based is held at the Cleveland Museum of Art.

This historical brocade reproduction is a Jacquard weave made of polyester and golden lurex threads. It is sturdier than silk blend brocade and holds its shape very well. 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 using a sturdy lining under this brocade, such as serge, satin, or habotai.

Care

This fabric can be hand washed at 30°C, but it will shrink and crinkle slightly. To avoid this, we recommend dry cleaning at a reliable dry cleaner. Unlike silk brocade, this fabric will not soften when laundered. Iron on the back side on a synthetic setting; if the fabric has been pre-shrunk, you may use steam.

FAQ

What defects can I expect?

The type of defect present in seconds fabric is always listed in the product parameters. Usually they are minor flaws and defects that occur only in part of the role (typically at the beginning or end). That's why our discounted seconds usually include only smaller pieces, not entire rolls.

Are your fabrics colorfast?

The fabrics in our core inventory, seasonal collections and limited editions are from repeated production cycles that we have quality-tested – given proper care their colors should not bleed. Fabrics that are on offer while supplies last are one-off products that have not been individually tested. We recommend doing a sample test.

Should I pre-shrink fabric before sewing?

If we recommend pre-shrinking for a particular fabric, we generally say so in the product description. As a rule, pre-shrinking is needed for linen, cotton, and rayon, but for finer fabrics (light rayon, Tencel and modal) proceed with care – don't use hot water or a hot iron, simply launder the fabric the way you will be laundering the completed garment.

Can I put goods on hold?

Yes. If you plan to pick up the goods in person at our store in Prague, you can put them on hold through the e-shop – there's a link just below the price on the product page. We will hold items for you for one week.

Do you accept orders by phone or email?

No. We only accept retail orders through the e-shop. This eliminates situations where someone else orders the last of an item while your order is still sitting in our inbox or lies jotted on a bit of paper by the phone. By purchasing online, you are putting an immediate hold on the product. Of course, you can always call or write to us if you need help making your selection.
