Reproduction of a historical fabric, a brocade from 13th century Asia Minor, in natural silk and rayon with gold thread. We chose to retain the original color combination—a gold pattern on a brilliant red field.

This lavishly ornamented, historical pattern includes fine, floral motifs—leaves and blossoms—around medallions containing an exquisitely detailed pair of lions rampant with their long tongues out. Between them is a stylized tree of life. The whole motif comes together to symbolize strength and power. A surviving fragment of fabric with this pattern bears the name of Sultan Kay Qubad I. The textile draws upon pre-Islamic and Islamic iconography typical for Central Asia, but details of the weave indicate that it was produced in Anatolia.

The original fragment is at the Musée des Tissus in Lyon.

This historical brocade reproduction is a Jacquard weave with a pure silk warp and a weft of rayon and lurex. Premium material 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.
