Deep red damask with satin weave and brocaded with golden-coloured metallic bullion thread on a silk core. The decoration follows a pattern of vertical lines in which the motifs are not parallel but abutted. The pomegranate is accompanied by floral elements that envelop it to create a network.
This design appears in many Spanish fabrics dating from long before, but in each period there are peculiarities, like in this example from the mid-17th century. Although the decoration is still framed within a network, this creates movement effects as the layout is not repetitive. In addition, the motifs get smaller and smaller than in the previous period.
