Silk Brocatelle. Isis medal of the Society of Arts for its production. The width is thirty inches. The texture seems substantial enough to last as many centuries as the Bayeux tapestry. The machinery in this pattern, we have understood, employs upwards of five thousand four hundred cards to each loom, and the preparation of it cost the manufacturers 3001. In satin damasks and brocaded silks the figure is produced by the shute, but in this brocatelle it is produced by the warp. This pattern is produced in crimson and gold, blue and gold, and green and gold.
