Colours that stand out vividly on a plain and monochrome fabric.
The characteristic element of our fabrics, the dyed thread stands out especially in this fabric.
In our weaving factory we do not dye ready woven fabric bolts, as most Italian and foreign weavers do, but we actually dye every single thread, granting a much more vivid, long lasting and resistant luminosity as well as a higher wear value of the fabric. Centuries of experience have taught us how to spot quality, which shows itself in our careful selection of the raw materials.
This table runner, cavaliere in Italian, can be matched with other colourful runners and napkins of the same fabric or with other jacquard or geometrical patterns, for a unique and personalized setting.
WHAT IS A “CAVALIERE”?
The sense of the classical term cavaliere (knight) is common to most people but the meaning in the decoration field is less known.
A cavaliere ia a fabric stripe which, covering a table on the width, gives rise to a setting for two. Basically a cavaliere is a wider and shorter runner extending from one side to the other on the width of a table allowing a set up for two, four, six and at the same time to show the beauty of a table. We could also say it's a long placemat for two.
The beauty of the cavaliere is in the versatility of its use: cavalieri can be of the same fabric and same colour, in mix match colours, in different finishes and in assorted patterns to create innovative table settings.
They are perfect for luxurious tables, which would be a pity to cover with a tablecloth, and for counters or for design furniture.
Decorating with cavalieri gives more space to fantasy and creativity and allows to decorate with elegance and freshness.
