Luxury brocade 160 51323 EAGLE & LEOPARD maroon

R6378/33 maroon warp - blue/yellow

Replica of Italian brocade from 14th century.

Italy was the principal silk weaving country in Europe in the 14th century and produced extremely technically accomplished silks, such as this brocaded lampas, with exotic patterns based on Near Eastern and other examples.Such patterns, although influenced by other cultures, were modified to suit European taste. During the 14th century they developed a freer form in design, moving away from the confining circles and other shapes which had previously been used to frame real or imaginary animals and birds. These luxury textiles, which often included metal threads, silver-gilt in this case, were highly desirable and traded throughout Europe. They were used for both dress and furnishings in ecclesiastical and secular contexts.

EAGLES - The original inspiration for this fabric was a curtain found at Hrádek u Nechanic castle. The original curtain was dark green with a print of a golden pattern. We converted everything into jacquard weaves, creating a luxurious replica.




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. We manufacture all our brocades in our company HEDVA ČESKÝ BROKÁT s.r.o factory in Rýmařov, Czech Republic. We ship all over the world.
