The Gothic Revival was a period of time when the greats from Pugin to William Morris, Scott to Comper created outstanding works of art, designs, and textiles for use in church vestments. Perugia is a textile design which carries on the tradition. Perugia, an elegant Gothic pattern, takes its inspiration from a Netherlandish textile design from the fifteenth century. Beautiful textile designs and patterns such as this were often depicted in the art of Jan Van Eyck and his followers. Woven in fibers of silk and cotton, Perugia is a rich, bold textile with a larger pattern repeat. The design is suitable for use in making larger sized vestments and church altar hangings or for use in making accent pieces such as orphrey trim. Available in one colorway of red on gold.*
