Tapestry Description

Embroidery tapestry

The Embroidery tapestry is from a series of six courtly life tapestries called La tenture de la Vie Seigneuriale, woven in Flanders in about 1520 and now in the Cluny Museum (Musée National du Moyen Âge), Paris. The mille fleurs background shows daisies, marigolds, speedwell, hyacinths, periwinkles, violets, Solomon’s seals, pansies and others.

Today this medieval mille fleurs wall tapestry is woven in Belgium in 88% cotton and 12% polyester. It is lined, with a rod pocket for easy wall-hanging. (It has a dark blue background.)
