Tapestry Description

The Promenade with 1 figure

The Promenade with 1 figure tapestry is an early 16th century mille fleurs tapestry from the six La tenture de la Vie Seigneuriale tapestries (Scenes from Lordly Life) woven in Brussels. It shows one of the five beautifully dressed people in front of a mille fleurs (thousand flowers) background. These flowers include marigolds, violets, hyacinths, daisies, speedwell, periwinkles, pansies and Solomon’s seals.

The Promenade (The Walk) is one of our favourite medieval tapestries which you can enjoy at the Cluny Museum (Musée National du Moyen Âge) in Paris. Today it is woven in Belgium in 89% cotton and 11% polyester and is lined, with a rod pocket for easy hanging. You can also purchase the full Promenade tapestry with five figures or a vertical tapestry with just two figures.
