Rich History in Kravet’s Constantinople Fabric Collection

Constantinople had a reputation for being the wealthiest city in Europe during the middle ages. This led it to be appropriately referred to as the "Queen of Cities." Kravet has debuted their Constantinople Fabric Collection and it does nothing less than live up to its name. The fabric collection is filled with iconic prints and weaves, each celebrating the rich history and craftsmanship of Turkey’s textile arts.

Damask prints, batiks, and ikat techniques are reworked to tell a modern story. Patara Pomegranate is a beyond gorgeous print that reflects the traditional style and mood of a Roman empire. The fiery orange, and blood red combination pairs nicely with a subdued grey and looks great juxtaposed with modern interiors. If brighter colors are not your thing, the Constantinople Fabric Collection is filled with natural browns and tans for a softer look.

Immerse yourself in a sea of gold. Kravet brings some wonderful gold fabrics that are sure to meet your fancy. Weaves and embroideries add dimension that imitate traditional woven baskets and handcrafted stitching. Kebir’s smooth texture and tiled pattern is a representation of the classic mosaic tiles found in history. It’s a sophisticated textile available in two luscious color combinations that offers luxurious detail to any bedroom or living room.

In interior design, stripes tend to be as classic as it gets. Just like every woman needing that little black dress in her closet, every collection needs a striped pattern. Mesud is Kravet Constantinople’s answer to the standard stripe. Available in 5 different color combinations, each complemented by a welcoming cream hue that stays standard throughout.

Kravet Fabrics carry classic Roman style to the modern age with the Constantinople Collection. Prints and patterns that were widely recognized and cherished in the 3rd and 4th centuries are reworked to fit the contemporary chic we are used to.
