Brocade Fleur de Lis, Dark Blue and Gold, 2m

Reference : 103-01-0029

Replica of historical brocade with the famous fleur-de-lis pattern.

Our reproduction is based primarily on the preserved original Sicilian brocade from the 13th century. The fabric is decorated with heraldic pattern of lily - a symbol of purity. This motif was abundant on textiles through the Middle Ages up to the baroque. During the reign of Louis VI. the heraldic motif of lily called "fleur-de-lis" was used as a royal symbol of France, but later on it was shown on many other heraldic symbols of cities (New Orleans to name one). It was typically a golden pattern on a dark blue background.

The fabric is woven using our unique, proprietary technology to most faithfully approximate the original. Like its source, it combines satin and twill weaves in lampasette, a type of damask that mimics more expensive lampas.

The original extant textile dated to the 13th century which we followed is deposited at the Metropolitan Museum in New York.

In our Pinterest Gallery we dedicated a separate board to the fleur-de-lis pattern.
