Product description

Product description

Pattern

The historical pattern reproduced here is made up of stylized plant tendrils with buds and blossoms arranged into ornate spirals with paired birds placed at regular intervals among them. The delicate tangle of foliage making up the background and the detailed working of the golden birds in the fore come together in an exquisite ornamental pattern typical of 12th century Oriental textiles.

The original fragment that served as the source for this reproduction is held in the collection of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Berlin.

Fabric

This historical brocade reproduction is woven by hand on a Jacquard loom in pure silk with genuine metallic threads coated in real gold. This combination of premium materials makes this brocade sturdy but soft, gentle to the touch, and breathable. The gold thread will not tarnish or lose its shine.

Made by hand

Because this fabric is hand woven and hand designed, there may be slight irregularities in the weave. These tiny imperfections are not considered defects, but rather a natural feature of hand crafting.

Applications

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

This brocade has loose threads on the back. We recommend lining it with a natural material such as silk or fine linen. For added stiffness, try silk organza or crepeline.

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

What is the smallest amount of fabric I can order?

The minimum fabric order is a length of 20 cm.

Should fabric be washed before sewing?

Let the recommended care notes in the fabric description be your guide – it will tell you if the fabric can be washed or steam ironed. For larger projects or more expensive fabrics, we recommend testing anything (washing, ironing, etc.) on a sample – natural and semi-synthetic materials (including brocades) are never absolutely predictable.

Is your assortment of fabrics always the same?

Most of our fabrics are one-time offers that last until they are sold out. For brocades, however, we regularly repeat some classic patterns and popular color combinations are often reissued. Look at the product's availability value – it shows whether the goods are available while supplies last with no reorder planned, or if it's part of a seasonal collection, where we order goods from a relatively stable selection at our manufacturer and regularly restock the most popular color combinations.

What is a seasonal collection?

The goods in the seasonal collection come directly from our verified manufacturers. We change up the colors on offer from season to season but fabric quality is always constant. For large (wholesale) orders, colors that have been sold out can be reordered individually.

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.

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.
