A cut velvet with a proliferation of stylized peonies and chrysanthemums, the Tivoli has the luster of polished Tiger?s eyes gemstone in some lights and the tawny gold of Serengeti grass in others. A horticultural wonder like its namesake, the original was exquisite ivory silk-satin ground with steel grey, teal and ruby red flowers. The warp creates thin stripes of silk velvet to create undulations of sienna golds and browns with highlights of deep red and silvery blue and purple. 12 specially dyed warps threads are woven to make this incredibly intricate and sophisticated multi-coloured cut velvet.
1) As this is a cut pile velvet with a natural linen ground and due to the weaving process there may be occasional variations in the depth of the pile of the velvet.
2) The linen ground may contain natural slubs and irregularities which are a normal part of the characteristics of the fibre. This is not a defect.
