Lampasette with Hunting Scene, Red, 0,75m

Reference : 103-07-0003

Our reproduction of a Dutch lampas from the 2nd half of the 16th century.

Images of animals and hunting scenes has accompanied the mankind ever since. Throughout the ages complete bestiaries of mixed real and fantastic animals typical for each culture have formed. Especially in Middle Ages the animals have perceived its symbolic and allegorical dimension. In the western mainly Christian bestiary the animal typically symbolizes either the Good or the Evil. Nevertheless these symbols of moral standards are rarely obvious on fabrics where animals had mainly decorative function like in this splendid silk.

This renaissance lampasette from pure silk has an obvious resemblance to the older Eastern scenes of hunting with large variety of animals. Here we can see panthers, dogs, rabbits and wild boars.

The original belongs to the textile collection of Musée de Cluny in Paris.

NEW TECHNIQUE! If you are familiar with our product line, then this silk might be a nice surprise to you. While it is pure silk, it is thicker and less lustrous then our previous damask fabrics. Our new weaving technology brings out fabric that is visually, by its weight and hand feel much closer to the samite and lampas weaves, which you can see in museums.
