    I've been rereading the article. The fabric is NOT printed. The pattern is WOVEN in. It's a weave structure called Samite, which was a huge luxury fabric in the Middle Ages. It has a satin like surface using several different colors of yarn (up to six colors) to make patterned cloth. Now I'm even more impressed.
