We reconstructed this pattern from the work of the in Flanders working German painter Hans Memling (†1494). On the right wing of the triptych, which was made to order for a prominent political representative of Bruges Willem Moreel, there is a depiction of Saint Barbara dressed in a richly patterned fabric. A similar pattern is also found on several other Memling's paintings. The floral motif is composed by a pronounced stripe of large rosettes and stems. Among the surrounding flowers there are elegant thistles and young chrysanthemums intertwined with decorative elements. The motive repeats itself in vertical strips three times over the width of the fabric.  The style of this Cloth of Gold corresponds to Renaissance designs from the years 1450 - 1520.

The Triptych family Moreel, from which the pattern was taken over, is exhibited by the Groeninge Museum in Bruges.

Note: Given the technology process of weaving this textile (handwoven fabric based on a hand drawn design), minor errors in weave may occur. These incidental imperfections are not considered as defects but rather a proof of a hand-crafted product. Also the pattern steps in design are a result of the technical limitations of looms not unusual for the medieval times.
