Materials & Finishes - Tapestry
Originally ornamental Oriental embroideries in which coloured threads of wool, gold, silk or silver were interspersed for adornment. In the textile industry, a tapestry warp differs from a typical solid coloured warp in that it is multicoloured. "True" tapestries have at least 6 different colours in the warp, but tapestry-type looks can be achieved with four-colour warps.
Because of the beautiful, multi-coloured detail effects, tapestry constructions are popular in a range of styles from scenic novelties to intricate florals.
