This historical pattern features pomegranates framed by a stylized floral motif that forms regular, pointed lozenges. The pomegranate was the preeminent symbol of prosperity and fertility in the Renaissance era. It appears often as a decorative element in art of the period. The original fragment upon which this reproduction is based was part of the collection held at the Museo Civico in Spoleto, Italy.

This historical brocade reproduction is a Jacquard weave made of polyester. It is sturdier than silk blend brocade and holds its shape very well, making it a natural for both tailored garments and wall hangings.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 using a sturdy lining under this brocade, such as serge, satin, or habotai.

Care: This fabric can be hand washed at 30°C, but it will shrink and crinkle slightly. To avoid this, we recommend dry cleaning at a reliable dry cleaner. Unlike silk brocade, this fabric will not soften when laundered. Iron on the back side on a synthetic setting; if the fabric has been pre-shrunk, you may use steam.
