Tiger - Silk - Handwoven
Single Spine – 26" Wide
As Marco Polo brought silk velvets to Italy from China, this classic silk velvet finds its roots in Venice, originally launched by Iris Apfel through Old World Weavers in the 1960’s. This work of art is still woven by hand in Venice today, otherwise known as the catalyst to our several beloved variations. With one spine and a narrow width very common for all handwoven fabrics, Tiger - Silk - Handwoven is a classic, luxurious Old World Weavers design.

TIGER - SILK
Single Spine - 50" Wide
Based on the popularity of the 26" wide Tiger, a 50" wide, machine woven silk velvet was created featuring a single center spine with an ombré reaching to the selvages. This version became so popular that we invested in a private loom to give priority to weaving the motif for Old World Weavers.

Based on an early 18th century French document, Chinoise Exotique is a grand design showcasing various interactions between Chinese figures, tropical botanicals, and exotic animals such as tigers, lions, cheetahs, and monkeys. This pattern is a classic example of the kinds of chinoiserie patterns developed for export to the European market in the early 1700s. These fabrics became so popular that France passed a law banning them from sale out of fear that they would collapse the French textile market.
