Vintage - new - 1989 - Florence

Florence, Italy - 1989 - Dimensions: 270 x 270 cm
Exceptional silk bedspread richly decorated with geometric motifs, and finished on three sides with a hazel cotton and silk fringe.
The bedspread is vintage so it is new and never used. It dates back to the second half of the 1900s. No noticeable signs of wear.

Highly valuable, very heavy bedspread.
Real masterpieces that demonstrate the accuracy in the preparation of designs and Jacquard loom print, as well as the evolution of fashion. Never ordinary fabrics, rich of different meanings with an inimitable patina that only authentic ageing can give.

Dimensions: 270 x 270 cm with a hem sewn on 3 sides.

The pictures are part of the item’s description. Shipping via tracked courier.

Weaving:
Matelassé fabrics are the result of a particular use of the Jacquard loom, where the pattern is made in relief with a voluminous three-dimensional effect.
This particular Jacquard waving technique allows the characteristic design, with a symmetrical front and back, to result in full and empty volumes inverting in the two sides of the fabric, which provides more opportunities for creativity.
Matelassé Jacquard fabrics give both visual and tactile stimuli and perceptions, and can feature both classic and modern decorations, geometric or floral patterns, as well as any other kind of decoration.
Matelasse fabrics give countless creative opportunities.
Naturally, the type of yarn also determines the final result. Starting with a double warp and a binding of the weft in order to form the characteristics tubular structures, matelassé fabrics are suitable for both fabric upholstery and clothing fabric.
The countless design variants, fibre type, texture, weight and weaving, increase the opportunities of this type of Jacquard weaving.

Strict geometric patterns woven with synthetic yarns can give structure to furniture fabrics with tenser yarns.
The chosen yarn and design can also lead to a soft, comfortable dress with less tense yarns. Alternatively, they can also be used for more structured and sturdy outerwear.

    L’oggetto presentava alcuni difetti sul filato del copripiumino, inotre sul lato di una federa si notano dei buchini probabilmente dovuti ad un’etichetta rimossa dal venditore
