Rubelli Venezia: Cordoba
‘Cordoba’ is created by fusing two elegant fabrics together, namely trimmings from the sixteenth century and Indian Ikat. This delicate design is available in 10 colors, great for light use or drapery.
Ikat is a technique used to design textiles. The patterns are created through the usage of resist dyeing. Here, yarn tends to be used to trace the design, working as a barrier preventing the paint from bleeding through.
Now a day, Ikat is used throughout the world, however, it is difficult to determine its origin due to a lack of historical documentation. Still, it is very probable that Ikat began in India as Ikat is deeply rooted in Indian culture. In addition, cave paintings have been found in India dating back to 7th century CE.
Rubelli Venezia: Katagami
Another one of our favorites is the elegant Trevira fabric, ‘Katagami’. This delicate design is inspired by Japanese culture. Katagami is a traditional Japanese technique using detailed paper stencils to dye fabrics. They are originally used to produce sophisticated patterns for kimono’s.
At the end of the 19th century, this technique started gaining worldwide recognition due to international art expositions held in Europe. Some believe that katagami is the trigger behind Japonism. This graceful fabric has a silky appearance and is available in 11 different colors.
Rubelli Venezia: Sanandaj
This gorgeous fabric allows you to travel all the way to the capital of Kordestan, in Iran. Sanandaj is well known for their rug production.
‘Sanandaj’ is found in 6 vibrant colors incorporated with a golden effect of the ground, great for elegant drapery and light use of upholstery.
