Leopard Palm – Carnelian – Weave
Code - LEP003
Cultivated in Egypt for millennia, the iconic form of the date palm, encased within a damask-like lattice, lies at the heart of this vivid design. The immediate inspiration was a gaufrage velvet fabric glimpsed in the ball scene from Visconti’s 1963 film The Leopard. The cotton, viscose and flax mix of the weave gives a rich shimmer to the fabric, which is suitable for upholstery, curtains or paper backed fabric walling. The name for the ‘carnelian’ colourway derives from the reddish-umber gemstone that was often used decoratively by ancient Egyptians.
