It is fully embroidered or woven, on both sides, allowing for a front and back that are equally rich and detailed.

Care tips

Dry cleaning

Brocades, for example, are delicate and intricate fabrics that require special care when cleaning. It is recommended, if you can, to have them professionally dry cleaned to avoid damage to the fragile woven threads. This is the best way to clean these fabrics.
