1) Tapestry is a form of textile art, traditionally woven by hand on a loom. Tapestry is weft-faced weaving, in which all the warp threads are hidden.
2) The success of decorative tapestry can be partially explained by its portability. Le Corbusier once called tapestries nomadic murals.
3) Kings and noblemen could roll up and transport tapestries from one residence to another. In churches, they were displayed on special occasions.
4) Tapestries have been used since at least Hellenistic times. Samples of Greek tapestry have been found preserved in the desert of Tarim Basin dating from the 3rd century BC.
5) The form reached a new stage in Europe in the early 14th century AD. The first wave of production occurred in Germany and Switzerland.
6) Example: The Bayeux Tapestry is an embroidered cloth nearly 70 metres long, which depicts the events leading up to the Norman conquest of England.
