- A style that takes its name from the gothic architecture, particularly the stained glass with its multiple openings and combinations of lines. The decorations in the fabric simulated architectural motifs that were made up of the reunion of vertical serpentine lines opposite each other. The antecedent is in Palermo, Italy, where they already knew the ogival arch. They were the ones who introduced it into the textiles combining it with other motif. In the 15th century this compositional style persisted, combining meneaux decoration and vegetable decorations, lending itself to numerous variations, introducing trimmings, ribbons, stems, etc. In the 16th century, vegetable motifs and meneaux merged into a single motif, until the vegetable motif prevailed, enlarging its dimensions.
