ROSE & LILAS
Louis XVI silk wall fabric with floral pattern
The fabrics in this collection, Exception, are some of the most prestigious from our archives. Formerly woven on hand looms which we have often been requested to re-weave. The designs have been transposed from hand loom to mechanical loom to make them more accessible both in price and in production time. Thus making it more possible to propose them for prestigious projects without losing anything of their exclusive and authentic character. There will be a limited stock of these designs but the lead time will be 12 weeks maximum.
