Outside of Turkey will sell fabric only for a variety of reasons – for interiors, period costumes, evening wear, bespoke clothing – but here is one we hadn’t done before. 

Our client was ordained at the Vatican in Ottoman Silks which is so wonderful to see.  The relationship between the Ottoman traders and the Venetians was very strong during the 15th and 16th centuries.  Between them they controlled the trade of silk from Istanbul through Venice to Europe and beyond making Venice, Genoa and the Ottomans very rich indeed.
