Tapestries

Tapestry is a form of textile art meant for wall hanging and tapestries are traditionally woven on a vertical looms. Tapestry is weft-faced weaving, in which all the warp threads are hidden in the completed work. Unlike cloth weaving where both the warp and the weft threads may be visible. In tapestry weaving, weft yarns are typically discontinuous; the artisan interlaces each coloured weft back and forth in its own small pattern area. It is a plain weft-faced weave having weft threads of different colours worked over portions of the warp to form the design.  Most weavers use a natural warp thread, such as linen or cotton. The weft threads are usually wool or cotton, but may include silk, gold, silver, or other alternatives.

At Rugs and More we carry the largest selection of certified tapestries on the west coast of Unites States and our tapestries have attracted discerning clients from around the world to decorate their walls with these classical woven arts and enjoy their beauty.
