Braque, a super, original, wool and linen, drapery sheer fabric with a unique and subtle woven geometric pattern, is new to the Rogers & Goffigon textile collection. It is available in a mixture of four soft colorways in natural, grey, blue and green tones.
At first glance, Braque looks like a vertical striped fabric, especially when held up to a window, where just enough light shines through to define a stripe against a semi-sheer ground.
But on closer inspection, a brilliant design of intricately woven tall rectangle blocks is revealed. This masterpiece of weaving is a technique with four different double-cloth weaves in the blocks that allow the warp and weft colors to interchange differently in each of the blocks thereby giving more shades of color, thus creating a kind of checkered geometric pattern.
This museum quality fabric is best used as drapery sheers and would make a spectacular Roman shade.
