In the world of reproduction tapestries, the best are custom designs followed by hand woven wool/silk reproductions. Next are the Jacquard woven tapestries in cotton/wool. Somewhere between them in quality and value is the serigraphic or silk-screened tapestry.
Custom tapestries are specific designs hand woven in 100% wool/silk for a special occasion or situation. The advantage is their uniqueness and their ability to resolve precise and demanding interior design requirements.
Hand woven tapestries are, as the name suggests woven on looms by hand, one thread at a time. These tapestry wall hangings have very fine details with a dense weave and are very affordable considering the skill and labor involved. Over 300 classic tapestry designs are available today.
Jacquard tapestries are woven on old looms which use a semi-mechanical process invented by one Joseph Jacquard in 1805. The Jacquard process revolutionized the weaving industry, allowing many people with good, but not necessarily royal incomes, to purchase their own wall hangings.
Heirloom European tapestry designs beautifully accent traditional, classic and contemporary spaces. Themes range from American heritage, landscapes, renaissance, and medieval designs to mythological, floral, pastoral and folk art. William Morris tapestries, the Lady with the Unicorn tapestries, the Bayeux designs and other classic wall hanging mille-fleur designs are favored for their French, Belgium and Italian heritage.
