Ruby Templar was inspired by the dress in the famous Italian Fresco 'Procession of the Magus Balthazar' (1459 – 61) – it is situated in the Palazzo Medici-Riccardi in Florence. This Liberty print is taken from the robe of one of the male figures in the fresco and created with felt tips and gouache.

The Fifteenth Century: oils, frescos and illumination - Rich silks, linen and wool were the basic materials used for dress manufacture at this time. Plain dyed fabrics were popular, but during this period designers excelled in the use of all over patterns using stylised flowers, vines and geometric motifs. Larger all-over patterns were brocaded. Designs were inspired by garments in oil paintings, frescos and illuminated manuscripts from this era.
