Figured ciselé velvet (cut pile and looped pile)
Velvet "Palio I"
  • Composition: ground warps, pile warps and wefts in 100% silk 
  • Woven on late-19th century hand-operated Jacquard looms

The pattern of this velvet, created in two variants, faithfully reproduces that of a typical 16th-century velvet manufactured in Florence for an entire century, beginning in the mid-1500s. The ‘Palio I’ velvet was set up on the loom for the first time by Giuseppe Lisio in 1925.
