The Spanish traditional silk shawl Manton de Manila owes its name to the Philippine port of Manila, where goods coming from the East were reloaded in the XVI century. It was through Manila that the Chinese silk handkerchief embroidered with traditional local themes of dragons, pagodas and bamboo sprouts came to Spain.
And since ships from Manila came to the port of Seville (Andalusia), it was the local rich lords and senoritas who first appreciated all the advantages of a luxurious silk scarf. Initially all the shawls brought were embroidered only with typical Oriental patterns.
But soon shawls began to be embroidered in Spain and exotic motifs were replaced with traditional European flowers and birds. And the choice of colors for each shawl was not accidental, because, for example, "rose "meant" secret"," Lily " - "purity"," sunflower " - "fidelity"," Daisy " - "impatience"," Daisy " - "excitement", and the closing flower - " mystery".
A beautiful handmade shawl, the most elegant accessory that will complement and decorate any outfit!
