Tapestry is a form of textile art, traditionally woven on a vertical loom. However, it can also be woven on a floor loom as well. The beautiful soft and subtle colours of this flat weave tapestry rug are still manufactured today using the same techniques as in the 17th and 18th century. The natural dyes are never gaudy and are resistant to light fading problems. Flat weave rugs are designed to provide comfort against cold stone floors or other hard surfaces though these incredible works of art can also be used as decorative wall hangings or as beautiful window treatments.
