This Baroque brocade features a striking floral pattern set on an emerald green background. Blossoms, stems, and leaves in silver and gold are entwined symmetrically. The design incorporates some elements typical of the latter phase of the “bizarre silks” style, with its use of natural motifs and a limited color palette. The original was produced in Europe, not imported from the Orient.

The fabric sample upon which this reproduction is based is held at the Cooper Hewitt in New York.

This historical brocade is woven using the jacquard technique with a warp of pure silk and a weft of rayon and lurex. These quality materials make this fabric very sturdy, but soft, pliable, and breathable. Reproductions such as this are perfect for sewing historical costumes and also bring something special to modern interiors or contemporary fashions.

We recommend pairing this material with a lining of natural linen or silk.

Care: We recommend dry cleaning this fabric at a reliable dry cleaner. Press on the back using the synthetics setting.
