This elegant faux plain harks back to the early 20th century, when the proponents of Art Deco reduced the floral and organic patterns of Art Nouveau to graphic linear forms. BELLE EPOQUE adopts the core creative concept of a fan, letting the pattern repeat act as a simple contrast in the weave throughout the fabric. The hand-drawn design, although inherently elegant, appears light, lively and modern. The jacquard fabric uses a fine, PES filament warp and cotton in the weft, complemented by fine stainless steel, giving the surface of the fabric a subtly iridescent three-dimensional character that changes every time light hits it. The mechanical Airo treatment, which uses no chemical and is environmentally friendly, gives the fabric a soft, voluminous feel.
