The pattern of three dots arranged in an equilateral triangle, known as the "Chintamani," was a highly popular decorative motive across Europe and Asia. The first documented occurrences of the pattern in Europe date back to the ancient Etruscans in the 7th century BCE. It persisted in ancient Rome and the Frankish Empire until the high Middle Ages. It is no wonder that we encounter it in the territory of Spain at the turn of the 13th and 14th centuries.

In manuscript pages, it usually adorns the clothing of prominent figures but is also used as a background motif. It can be found on sculptures and wall paintings. Julianna Lees has compiled an exhaustive work on this pattern.

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.
