Brocade is a traditional woven technique that is crafted on Dunion Silk. This coin purse is created using the leftover off-cuts from a fabric factory – by repurposing this scrap fabric, our artisans are saving these gorgeous textiles from going into a landfill.

Brocade is a shuttle woven fabric which is usually constructed on draw looms, taking much longer than many other textiles due to the intricate nature of the technique, and the years of practice it often takes for artisans to develop their skills. The brocade designs often add a thickness and sturdiness to the fabric that is absent in other design as the pattern is woven into the fabric itself instead of being added on top. The painstaking effort, traditional significance, and elaborate designs that brocade fabric often has all contribute to these products looking beautiful and sophisticated.

Hand wash in cool water.

Approximate size: 15(L) x 12cms (H)
