PERUGIA Shopping -
Featured in many art works from the late 13th century onwards, the beautifully woven table linens of Mediaeval and Renaissance Italy, commonly knwon as "Perugia towels" by art historians, are still woven today . These towels are made from a traditional combination of cotton and linen woven together, with brocaded borders in a contrasting color, either in indigo or woad-dyed cotton. Although some are plain-woven or have herringbone grounds, the vast majority are woven in six-harness diamond twills, with the brocaded designs worked over a warp-faced rep. The brocaded patterns can be simple geometric designs, zigzags, stylised floral designs, inscriptions, designs depicting birds and animals, human figures or creatures from mythology.
