Fleur de Lys Tapestries offers an extensive collection of wall-hanging tapestries, fabrics and tapestry cushions
Fleur de Lys Tapestries offers an extensive collection of tapestries, tapestry cushions and tapestry fabric for decorative and functional home-furnishing. These quality articles are all produced from traditional European loom-woven tapestries and are all hand-finished.
The exquisite tapestries capture the atmosphere of the originals and are created by skilled craftsmen working in many attractive textures. Designs cover the period from the 11th Century to the 19th Century, from the historical Bayeux Tapestry of Norman times to the decorative ‘Arts and Craft’ style of the Victorian era. All tapestries are bordered and lined using fine quality material and are ready for hanging.
Tapestries are magnificent and are suitable for entrance halls, dining areas, lounge rooms and other areas of your home where an object d’art can be appreciated.
The tapestries are either woven or silkscreen. Based on a weaving method invented in 1804, loom-woven tapestries are produced on Jacquard looms, involving the interweaving of warp and weft yarns of different colours to create the design. The setting up and control of the looms is a highly skilled and delicate operation requiring much attention to detail.
Silkscreen tapestries are reproductions of the original works hanging in places such as the Louvre, Chateaux in the Loire Valley and in private homes in Europe. These tapestries are high quality, with the emphasis on recreating the atmosphere and visual impact of the classic masterpieces.
Both types are ideal investment and heirloom pieces, which are major talking points in any house or office. Due to the nature of tapestry fabric, nobility and scholars throughout history have collected and preserved these works of art. Now you can see these works of art in palaces and museums throughout the world. Or you can own a piece of history and culture to savour and preserve for yourself. Here are most of history’s finest tapestries reproduced for you. Each tapestry comes in different sizes as detailed in the enlargements.
These works of art are the finest made in the world. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
