lavish and fine fabric, whose magnificent patterns and wefts in gold and silver remind us of the Baroque art. Lampas, in fact, became popular in the 16th century, but its origins date back to an even older era: the 10th century.

Its complex structure requires two warp systems, a ground one and a binding one, and at least two sets of wefts. These structures create a three-dimensional effect in the designs and are very suitable for incorporating decorative metal threads, in gold or silver, to enrich the fabric.

Its decoration, which is generally not embossed, stands out clearly from the background whose weave is usually in satin or taffeta.

Today it is mainly used in furnishing, for upholstery, curtains, luxury wallpaper, and liturgical vestments.
