This fabric reflects the popularity of the Ballets Russes, which
performed in Paris for the first time in 1909 and created a sensation
with its exotic costumes and set designs. The bright colors and
orientalist designs influenced the decorative arts and especially
fashion throughout the 1910s and into the 1920s. The bright oranges
and greens are typical of orientalism.
