Tapestry Rugs

TapestryTapestries are a form of weft-faced weaving textile. A tapestry is traditionally made on an upright loom; however it can also be made on a floor loom.

In a tapestry, warps are held by a loom and wefts go between warps so that warps get hidden under the wefts. Wefts go back and forth to create a design. Warp and wefts can be of any material. Usually wool, silk, cotton or linen are used to make a tapestry but sometimes even gold and silver can be used as wefts to make it.

Tapestries have a very long history in the world. Some of the tapestries on display in museums go back as far as third century BC.

Today, some people continue to use tapestries as a special kind of artwork that can be used for wall hanging, curtains, and more.
