Navigio from The Bayeux Tapestry

Sailing scene woven in Belgium

Navigio from The Bayeux Tapestry is named from the Latin text on this sailing scene from the famous embroidery (not a tapestry) that is 224 feet (nearly 70 metres) long and 20″ high (50cm). The embroidery shows the history of the Norman invasion of Saxon England in 50 scenes. These run from the death of King Edward the Confessor through William the Conqueror’s invasion to the decisive Battle of Hastings in 1066. Today it can be viewed at the Musée de la Tapisserie de Bayeux in Normandy.

This sailing scene woven in Belgium has a 72% cotton, 19% trevira and 9% wool weave which gives full and depth with good detailing. It is fully lined, with a rod pocket for easy hanging.

A regular Australian customer purchased several tapestries for framing including Navigio from The Bayeux Tapestry and wrote this Google Review: “Highly recommended. Wonderful quality tapestry pieces. Very helpful service, am sure to buy again!”

A customer in the south of France sent us this intriguing photograph of two Bayeux tapestries hanging outside. As well as the Navigio scene we also see the Mont St Michel tapestry (she added their hanging tabs herself though all our tapestries have a rod pocket):
