Product description

Origin & Pattern

Persian and Mesopotamian silk industry adopted many elements from the old Iranian and old Oriental tradition. Often we can see e. g. the hunters of lions or tableaus from animal fights or hunts. After the Islamization of Persia, the local weavers used the original Sasanian motives, at least at the beginning, what is demonstrated by the patterns of the textiles.

On the crimson colored background there are gold colored repeating roundels. In each roundel is a pair of confronted winged lions with goat-headed tails. Above them is a pair of confronted eagles. Roundels are decorated with small circles which contain various animals - a peacock, a winged lion, and an eagle. Around them are flying birds and growing palmettes.

The original of this textile is now on display at the Victoria and Albert museum in London.

Fabric

Like brocade, damask is a fabric where the pattern is woven in. The technique, known as early as the Middle Ages, relies on the visual contrast of different weaves. The fabric is densely woven of fine 100% silk threads, making a high level of detail possible. Damask is smooth, with a slight sheen, soft to the touch and breathable.

Application

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

Under damask we recommend using a silk lining, such as habotai.

Care

We recommend dry cleaning this fabric at a reliable dry cleaner. In our tests 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.
