Product description

Product description

The pearled medallion pattern was typical for central Asian textiles going back to ancient times. Sogdian weavers probably took their inspiration from the art of the Sasanian Empire, but the popularity of the pattern among nomadic tribes makes it difficult to pinpoint its origins and trace its subsequent spread. Here the pearl roundels each contain two cocks in opposition with pointed beaks and colorful wings. The space between roundels is filled by squared ornaments of stylized, geometrical flowers.

Our reproduction is based on a preserved fragment of a “robe of honor.” The tradition of presenting an honorary garment as a sign of favor was widespread. Such gifts were typically made of the very finest and most exclusive materials.

This historical brocade reproduction is a Jacquard weave with a pure silk warp and rayon weft. The use of premium materials makes this brocade very sturdy, yet soft, gentle to the touch, and breathable. 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 lining this brocade with a natural material such as silk or fine linen.

Care

We recommend dry cleaning this fabric at a reliable dry cleaner. Laundering softens it and changes its appearance – it shrinks and crinkles. Take care when ironing, press on the back side at a low temperature (silk).

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.
