An intricate trellis of diamonds and knots, I adapted this design from a 13th century Byzantine silk fragment. Since elaborate silks such as these were used to ornament the chambers of Byzantine princesses, I named it after a famous Byzantine princess and designed it to be worked in a rich garnet color and a soft antique blue, both colors that came from the famous porphrios dyestuff of the ancient world. This beautiful and intricate design can be finished as a table runner, cushion cover, or wall hanging.

Because it is worked in only two colors, it would be easy to change the colors to any two color combination you like.
