The Sun wheel is a symbol in the shape of a right-angled cross inside a circle. It is likely the oldest and one of the most commonly used symbols in Western civilization. In its earliest form, it depicts the journey of the sun through the seasons. Christianity adapted this pagan symbol into its own symbols (the Roman Catholic cross) around the 2nd to 3rd century AD.
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.
