This is a stylized version of the reproduction of the fabric of the dress which Eleonora Di Toledo wore in the famous portrait. It's a marvelous example of Italian, Tudor / late Renaissance fabric design.
Please have a look at the 'Test Swatch' size (by clicking the radio button on the right) to see the details!
The actual fabric was 'voided' velvet, a fabric which has a satin background with velvet designs on it. Since that particular type of fabric is basically unobtainable nowadays - there's, to my knowledge, only one company in the world that still weaves this fabric, at a whooping cost of $500+ per yard - this "just" printed fabric may be a good alternative if you're "just" after the look and don't need the authentic material.
The fabric is printed at the approximate size of the original fabric and has a repeat of 24x36 inches on fabric and 24 x 35.98 inches on wallpaper.
This particular version is a stylized version of the design, with bold but clear patterns.
It's not so much suitable for the reproduction of the historical dress but works very well for modern versions or stylish curtains, throws and tablecloths.
I also offer this design in different versions
(one that also has silver in the design; and two others which are 'mock velvet' designs and imitate the velvet (with tiny 'hairs' in the print) as well as the golden / silver parts of the fabric with rows of golden loops)) - please visit my 'Tudor / Elizabethan / Jacobean' fabrics collection to see all of them!
Like with almost all my other fabrics, I recommend ordering this design in either Organic Cotton Sateen (which, at 56 inches, is extremely wide - so you get more fabric if you order a yard!), Cotton Poplin or - if you desire a more shiny look - the Cotton Silk, since colors will print brightest on those fabric types.
In case you'd like to order this fabric in different colors or at a different scale, please don't hesitate to send me a message; I can quickly set different versions up for you.
If you were always wondering how different colors print on the various fabrics that Spoonflower offers, please do have a look at my website where I have quite a few comprehensive photos of color swatches printed on various fabrics!
