The woven textiles used in our bomber jackets, and pants and coat inserts were produced in Hungary mostly in the 1940s and 1950s. These factory-manufactured, high quality textiles were considered to be luxury items in rural Hungarian households and, as such, were used mainly as decoration and preserved in pristine condition. The textiles were utilised in their original form as they were woven: people hung them on the walls or covered tables and beds with them on special occasions to showcase wealth and taste.
The patterns were usually romantic in mood with floral or geometric motifs. In some cases, German or Eastern-European influences also appeared in pieces featuring animals and forests.
