As of the 27th of January 2014, this design has been resized to be 25.3 opposed to the earlier 36 inches high.
In case you ordered this fabric earlier and need to reprint more of the old scale, please send me a message so I can resize it back for you!
This is a 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 type of 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 16.87x25.3 inches on fabric and 24 x 35.98 inches on wallpaper.
This particular version is a 'mock velvet and golden design'; it imitates the velvet (with tiny 'hairs' in the print) as well as the golden parts of the fabric with rows of golden loops.
I also offer this design in different versions (one that also has silver in the mock design and two others which are stylized versions of this mock design without the 'hairs' and the 'golden rows' - 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, however, you can tolerate non-natural fabrics, I would recommend either of the polyester fabrics, like Silky Faille (non-stretch) or Performance Knit (stretch), since on those fabrics, the colors and, in this case, "black" print best.
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.
This design is also available printed on many other products at my Cafepress store as well as on Zazzle!
