Apocalypse Tapestry Fruit Tree

14th century medieval tapestries

The Apocalypse Tapestry Fruit Tree shows a fruit tree from the Apocalypse Tapestry (no surprise) but what is surprising are some of the statistics about this medieval tapestry. It was woven in 1377 to 1382 for Louis I in 90 scenes of the story of the Apocalypse from the Book of Revelation. The story was divided into six parts, each 78 feet long and 20 feet high. During the French Revolution the tapestries were cut up but portions of 71 of the 90 scenes were found in 1848 and were restored. These remaining 353 feet are the oldest surviving medieval tapestries and are now displayed in a stunning gallery at the Chateau d’Angers in the Loire Valley.

Today we have several sections available of the Apocalyse Tapestry, woven in France by Jules Pansu in 95% cotton. All are lined, with a rod pocket. We enclose instructions about how to hang a tapestry with your order. They make excellent matching pairs or group settings. Interestingly, these 14th century tapestries have quite a contemporary appearance.
