The thistle is a symbol of Scotland and its people. Although there is a compelling legend about why it became the national flower of the Scots, the true reason remains unknown. Allegedly, a Norseman stepped on a thistle in 1263, revealing a Norwegian ambush and leading to the Scots' decisive victory at the Battle of Largs. The thistle has been used as a national symbol since at least the 15th century, appearing on silver coins during the reign of King James III in 1470.

 

Brocade was a historical term typically used to describe a fabric, usually silk, with a distinct jacquard pattern. Patterns were woven with threads containing expensive metallic fibers, such as silver or gold. However, the term "brocade" later began to be used for any fabric with a rich pattern. The technique for producing brocades originated in the Middle East. All our fabrics are high quality product.
