Ismaelia Fabric by Pierre Frey
Ismaelia reproduces a canvas printed around 1830, entitled "La girafe", kept at the Musée de l'impression sur Etoffes in Mulhouse. The animal intended for Charles X, unloaded in Marseille in 1826, crossed France to reach the menagerie of plants in Paris. This extraordinary event gave birth to the "giraffomania" in the decorative arts.
Available by the linear metre.
*A full length display sample of this fabric is available to see in our Richmond showroom.
