(This is probably a self-portrait of Jan van Eyck.)
You can say it either CR-moy-zee or CR-muh-zee, and cramoisie (or cramoisy, for like so many mediaeval words it isn't fussy about its spelling) means crimson in colour, or, especially, a crimson cloth such as is made for the most royal of shoulders.

What pieces of cramoisie can I spot from here? This is a cream and green room, but I can see the odd cramoisie spine of a book, and some dried cramosie rose petals in a bowl with pine cones and spices.
I might love those rose petals even better now I know they're not just crimson, but cramoisie, too.
Spot the Frippet: cramoisie. This word comes from the Old French cramoisi, from the Arabic qirmizī, obtained from the kermes scale insect Kermes vermilio, from the Sanskrit krmija- red dye, literally produced by a worm, from krmi, worm.
That's Queen Elizabeth I of England, quite possibly in kermes-dyed cloth.
