Boreale is based on a Syrian scarf singled out for its colours of spectacular beauty. These vivid and enchanting colours recall the fascinating history of Syrian textile tradition treasured by travellers as far back as the Silk Road era, when cities such as Palmyra and Aleppo were critical stopping points on the route between China to imperial Rome. In the case of Boreale, the original silk was replaced by linen, woven as a satin weave to bring out the deep hues which were specifically dyed to match the fragment’s stripes. Vertical stripes require time to hand set every colour on the warp. We worked very closely with our weavers in Como to create this spectacular vertical stripe with a lustrous sheen which exudes the richness and sensuality of ancient Syria.
