History of Prussian Blue fabric process: This fabric has the most beautiful Prussian blue ground. Prussian blue was made by the German colormaker Diesback in Berlin around 1704, when he accidentally formed the blue pigment when experimenting with the oxidation of iron oxide. It was a very popular color used in the 19th century.
