A little bit of history...

The typical French style of tapestries became very famous thanks to the “Unicorn series” woven between 1480 and 1500. This group of 6 medieval tapestries includes the famous “to my only desire” and 5 other pieces representing the 5 human senses.

The Renaissance period gave birth to the Flemish workshops and the well known workshops in France, like the “Royal manufacture of Gobelins” in Paris, the “Aubusson” or “Felletin” manufacture and the “ Beauvais ” manufacture.

Each of them developed different skills and techniques that gave their tapestries recognizable qualities; like this typical 18th century tapestry from the Aubusson workshops. Many pieces were being commissioned by the royal courts during this period of high activity in tapestry production.

Mechanical techniques were developed during the XIXth century in order to increase production and reduce costs. In terms of quality, the jacquard loom was the most effective.

The jacquard technique is still in use, reproducing the ancient scenes of historical tapestries and more modern and contemporary designs. These can be found today in museum shops or luyury home interior decoration shops.
