The intertwined basilisk design was based on a striking black and white antique book plate, which seemed to be Swiss. Switzerland has a history of basilisk imagery and legend. Basel hosts sculptures and drinking fountains memorializing the legends.

No basilisks were harmed in the making of this fabric.
