As oases in the middle of inhospitable deserts, so too do
many of the most prominent cities of the Middle East rise up from the vast
sands. During the Middle Ages many of these cities became prominent parts of
tale and fable, with stories of their great riches reaching as far as Europe.
Part of the legacy of these exotic places was their exquisite architecture.
One of the cities that captured western imagination was the
Persian city of Isfahan in what is today Iran. Isfahan abounds with outstanding
examples of Middle Eastern architecture, including the Naghsh-e Jahan Square, a
UNESCO World Heritage Site.
There are various examples of how this one city influenced
European culture. For instance, Chaharbagh Boulevard was the inspiration for
Paris's famous Champs-Élysées boulevard. Also, famed French composer Gabriel
Fauré composed the chanson Les Roses d'Ispahan for voice and piano to
words by Leconte de Lisle.
Isfahan Satin Charmeuse evocatively captures the languorous
Orientalism of Fauré's creation as well as the exotic beauty of the city of
Isfahan. The tie-dye design includes a delicate mixture of pink and sky blue
with faint wisps of lavender.
Isfahan Satin Charmeuse can be used for bed sheets, pillow
cases and comforters. Draperies and decorative pillows are other ideas for satin
Isfahan Satin Charmeuse can be used for garments such as
evening dresses, prom gowns and other ladies' formal wear. Blouses, skirts,
scarves and fashion accessories are some additional uses for charmeuse. Isfahan
Satin Charmeuse can also be used to make lingerie and other unmentionables.
