Aged tulips with gold and silver fabric by su_g on Spoonflower - custom fabric

More about this preview. Help_icon

Tulips woven with gold and silver and artificially worn and 'aged'. A simplified simulation of a woven textile from the Ottoman court studios, a remnant of the original is in the Davidson Museum in Denmark.

Related designs are 'Tulips woven with gold and silver' - pale blue tulips on a bright red ground, and 'Blue tulip tapestry' - bright and pale blue tulips woven with gold on a blue ground with tiny white dots.

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.
