Brocades go back a long way, to the Sung dynasty in 9th-century China, and re-emerged in popularity in Genoa and Florence during the Renaissance, and then Lyon and Spitalfields in the 18th century. Inspired by a small piece of 17th-century green brocade from Genoa, Genovese is a beautiful, rustic bourette de soie shimmering in gold and silver, yet alive with natural rawness.
