Gobelin - Wall Tapestry

GOBELIN - WALL TAPESTRY an ancient document of art of weaving

Already the Egyptians, Jewish and Flemish weavers journeyed from town to town with their loom in the times of emperor Constantine produced coloured pictures.
The wall tapestry has been hand-woven in a special procedure being weaving and emboidery at the same time. It is really surprising, how skilful our ancestors connected Refined methods with high sense of art. In contrary to oriental tapestries, wall tapestries are not knotted.
GOBELINS (wall tapestries) have been produced in Flanders and in the first French manufactory of the family Gobelin. Without continous weft many short, coloured threads have been integrated in the warp according to the model of precious works of art.
The weavers worked by means of a drawing showing all details of the painting in the same size as the tapestry to be made. This warpknitted fabric is very similar to the normal weaving method, however, for wall tapestries the weaver has to stop whenever he has to use threads of other colours.
In the XIV. century until the first decades of the XV. century popes and princes such as Louis XI. ordered wall tapestries from French and Flemish artists showing important events at the court.
