The  gryphon is a mythological and symbolical figure. It has the head of an eagle, that symbolizes cleverness and the body of a lion, that symbolizes power.
The first traces date back to the Hittites, the Assyrians, the Babylonians, the Greeks and the Romans: specimens are found in Mycenae, Cyprus and Crete.
The pattern of the two gryphons facing each other, with an ornamental element in the centre, is present in the art and architecture of ancient Greece  and was widespread in the applied arts in Italy during the Renaissance
 
The olive tree has accompanied mankind through time and history with its symbolic, religious, cultural and social values. It evokes a sunny, bright, coloured environment and its trunk, branches and leaves are fascinating. It has always played a major role in the traditions of the Mediterranean. Homer, in his poem Odyssey mentions that Ulysses's bed was made on the cut cask of an olive tree. All the ancient peoples represented the olive tree as a decoration and it is also an important religious symbol of peace. Actually on Palm Sunday a blessed olive branch is distributed to devotees.
 
The products of TESSITURA PARDI SRL are characterized by a sober and harmonious elegance and by a constant and aesthetic pursuit, typical of the creativity of a Renaissance “workshop”. The fabrics are made by using the natural fibres of linen and cotton and are the result of the skilful activity of competent craftsmen, absorbed in the typical processing “jacquard”, by shuttle power looms. The articles can be also customized and include bedspreads, curtains, tablecloths, runners, cushions, placemats, kitchen towels, guest towels and bath towels.
 
The Cerere pattern draws inspiration from Ceres, the goddess of vegetation.
Her festival, the “Cerealia”, was celebrated on April 19th, and in the fifth century B.C. a temple in her honour was erected near the Circus Maximus.
The most important representation of Ceres is a little Greek statue that is preserved in the National Museum in Naples.
The most remarkable paintings are the one by Michele Pannonio, that is preserved in the Museum of Fine Arts in Budapest, the one by Peter Paul Rubens in the Museum of Prado in Madrid, and the fresco by Filippo Gherardi in the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence
