What a stunning brocade from Italy, so eye-catching with an exquisite coloration! The jacquard weave makes it totally reversible, and the rich jewel tones create a stripey abstract design with a 16.5" repeat. The color that unites them all is a dark navy with a more matte finish, and the other colors, which have more sheen, alternate from grassy green to ruby to aqua to amethyst to citrine... The surface texture is smooth and refined and it's a medium suiting weight with nice malleability and a crisp drape. Beautiful quality! Make a stunning jacket --short or long-- for a special occasion, or a sculptural garment for a dramatic evening look. Dry cleaning recommended.
