Blog Ethnic Chic: The royal lampas motifs of Tassinari and Chatel

Fabrics with a history, Tassinari and Chatel is one of those ‘heritage’ brands from France. Exquisite collections of ‘lampas‘ and ‘brocatelle’: original hand-woven techniques that are made by masters. Typical for Tassinari is the ornamental richness of design with garlands and florals from centuries ago, let’s take you into the royal chic look!

Ornamental richness

The left picture below we took here in our studio, the Cernuschi (available on request). The right picture is the Mansart design, which is available in our online shop!

Lampas finesse

These magnificent French fabrics symbolise all finesse. The right picture above is the Pompadour, a lovely chic floral design. Timeless and classic. Last time we showed fabrics of another historical brand with the same finesse; Prelle. Same range and quality, but for sure different designs. Tassinari et Chatel is slightly more classic and traditional.

From Drawing to fabric

This fabric has a real story.. It was 1914 that artist Suzanne Lalique, daughter of the famous glassmaker, sold one of the drawings (left picture) to Mr. Tassinari, who made a silk damask (middle and right picture). Almost a century later, the brand returns to date this rich and shimmery fabric.
