Named after the sister of Louis XVI, this document evokes the "chiné à la branche" method, which was in fashion at the end of the 18th century in both clothing and interior design. This technique consists of partially dying small groups of thread, called "branches", before weaving. This technique is similar to ikat, but it produces typical European designs consisting of flowers and stripes. It was very popular in the 18th century and printing manufacturers were quick to reproduce theses blurred-contour motifs through block printing.
