Reviving a treasured archival design, 'Paolina' by Pratesi is adorned by an interlinked palmette motif embroidered in shimmering thread. The palmette - a stylised form of the lotus, lily, or palm - is ubiquitous in ornamental art, tracing its lineage back to Ancient Greece and Egypt.
This symbol of everlasting life imbues Paolina with mysterious magnificence. Paolina's base fabric is Angel Luxe, the signature percale woven from the finest Egyptian cotton fibres. It is hand-cut and finished with mezzo point hemstitch at Pratesi's Italian ateliers.
