This fabric sits perfectly within the Orientalist trend of the second half of the 19th century. Writers such as Lamartine in 1835 and Gérard de Nerval in 1851 contributed significantly to the development of this interest in the Orient. The decorative arts bore witness to this fervour in the profusion of designs alluding to this theme. This tiger hunt scene decorated a bedspread in a house owned by the Le Manach family.
