The cross-point™ Collection

Pattern: TOPKAPI ("X")

Persian and Florentine velvets and silks are among the most sumptuous textiles ever created. Our Topkapi pattern is loosely based on a richly embroidered Medieval church vestment of which many examples are in museums around the world. Edged by a repeating diaper pattern, the center panel consists of a Greek cross element surrounded by a quatrefoil of tulips.
