Searching for a 100% silk repro of a late 15th c. silk damask, perfectly tracing the genuine counterpart?
If you answer is "yes", you may be VERY interested in this project...
Our Cultural Association (IMAGO ANTIQUA - http://www.imagoantiqua.it) presents the ambitious enterprise of FONDAZIONE LISIO - ARTE DELLA SETA (LISIO FOUNDATION), headquartered in Florence, aiming at reproducing with ancient looms the damask of a doublet which was tailored more than 530 years ago, discovered on the mortal remains of a well-known Italian “condottiere” named Diego Cavaniglia (1453-1481).
You're kindly invited to read all details on our website (link to blogpost in English language):
