The Beauty of Tapestries
Fleur de Lys exquisite Tapestries capture the atmosphere and charm of the originals and are created by skilled craftsmen in small ‘ateliers’ working in many attractive textures. Choose from hundreds of designs, colours and sizes to add that luxurious touch to your décor.
These tapestries have been hand-picked as being the most beautiful and most artistic of all tapestries still being made by French, English and Flemish weavers. 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 silkscreen or woven. 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.
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.
