Product description

Product description

This velvet fabric features a pomegranate design, one of the most widely used motifs in Renaissance luxury silks. Other floral elements were popular in this period as well – palmettes, lotus flowers, thistles, and pine cones. The decorative units on our silk velvet are arranged horizontally, creating a rich and harmonic pattern. The symbolic meaning of the pomegranate as the bearer of fertility, prosperity, and immortality, so popular in Renaissance Italy, probably came to the west from Persian culture. This reproduction is modeled on a pattern from the TextileAsArt online database.

Our reproduction of this historical velvet fabric is woven from 100% pure, natural silk, making it an absolute rarity among today’s patterned velvets. The base is made of a sturdy silk duchesse satin and the pile that forms the pattern is also pure silk. The fabric has a firm hand. It is tightly woven and sturdy and its satin base has a delicate pearly sheen. Because it is 100% silk, it is quite light, with a soft touch, and breathable. Reproductions of period fabrics are perfect for sewing historical costumes but they can also bring something special to modern interiors or contemporary fashions.

If you plan to use a lining, we recommend pairing this silk fabric with a silk lining.

Care

We recommend dry cleaning this fabric at a reliable dry cleaner. Washing may cause the fine plush to tangle and break. If you must iron velvet, never do so on a hard surface; instead, hang the fabric and steam iron from the back side.

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.
