"Odalisca" is a special version of Sherazade. Its unique fabric cover designed by Francesco Binfaré harks back to 19th century Orientalist painting - especially Eugene Delacroix - with overtones of Matisse-inspired collage. It is a design that speaks of Arabian Night carpets.

The bold silvered flourish, as if drawn by a swooping scimitar, lends an exotic oriental sumptuousness. Transferring this complex pattern to the high-tech looms of today took some 300 hours.

The production process blends several ancient handloom techniques - from brocade to kilim. The resultant weave reproduces the materiality of traditional Arab fabrics that combine yarns of different thickness and texture, from wafer-thin lurex to chunky chenille.
