Description:

Bright & pale blue tulips woven with gold & silver on a blue ground with small white dots. Metallic oil & chalk. © Su Schaefer 2014. A re-imagination of a woven textile from the Ottoman court studios (remnant in the Davidson Museum, Denmark). See more versions of 'Tulips' by Su_G.

The same design is also available reversed 180 degrees 'Blue tulips woven with gold and silver'. Related designs are 'Tulips woven with gold and silver' - pale blue tulips on a bright red ground, and 'Aged tulips with gold and silver' - darker blue tulips on a worn and 'aged' dark red ground.

Apparently, at certain times, the Sultans in the Ottoman empire banned the manufacture of textiles like this, as they used so much gold and silver thread that they drained the empire's precious metal reserves.

Metallic oil and chalk, basic repeat.
[Currently set @ Fabric: 450 ppi , Wallpaper: 300, Gift wrap 450 ppi (a LARGE SCALE version is 'LARGE SCALE Blue tulip tapestry')]

su_g says: Thanks everyone for all your great comments on seeing this as the feature design on the Spoonflower front welcome page! I really appreciate yr time to leave a note here. For those who wonder, not a single sale has resulted (so far) - i think my husband puts his finger on it when he says "tulips are red". And pls excuse my weird typing as i only have one working hand so far, the other is wearing a v. fetching powder blue cast - waterproof so can now wash my hair myself, wonderful!

su_g

su_g says: Thank you so much Shirley, Joan, Lisa and Lori for your lovely comments and feedback. I think it's funny-ironic that this design, the idea for which was a remnant of fabric from the Ottoman Court Weavers has made it all the way into the modern age as peel and stick wallpaper... I'm sure this says something but I'm not quite sure what.
