This brocade replica is derived from a silk damask made in Italy in the early 17th century. The fragment comes from a lady’s gown; its linen lining was also preserved. The dainty, symmetrical pattern consists of stylized flowers, palmettes alternating with smaller blooms, connected by acanthus leaves. The acanthus pattern is highly stylized, in the form of a scrolled leaf. This motif achieved its greatest popularity and ornamentation later, in the Baroque and late Rococo period. There are three color variations to choose from – a dark green background with the pattern in silver-gold, in green-gold, or in green. The pattern itself is 4.7 cm wide.

The fabric is woven using our unique technology to most faithfully approximate the original. Like its source, it combines satin and twill weaves in lampasette, a type of damask that mimics more expensive lampas.

The original fragment is housed at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
