At Heirloom Tapestries, our handwoven tapestries are based on the original works of art that hung all over Europe centuries ago. One common theme in art during the 18th century was the sea. Because explorers were just setting out to see the world, maritime and port themes were popular subjects, and tapestries often portrayed scenes from daily life such as ports and harbours. Our maps and maritime tapestries are perfect for those who love travel and the sea. Shop our collection of fine handwoven tapestries at Heirloom Tapestries today.
