While there are many forms of textile art embodying many different techniques and materials, a tapestry has to be hand-woven on a loom using a specific technique called “tapestry weaving”. In this technique the weft or horizontal thread that is used to build-up the woven image is discontinuous, as opposed to “plain weave” in which the weft runs continuously across the width of the loom. Tapestry weaving demands the full concentration of the tapestry artist on the meticulous line-by-line execution of the minute detail of the chosen design; tapestry is the weaving together of vision, patience and passion.
