A beautiful rendition using Aubusson Flat Weave made with 100% New Zealand Wool woven by skilled artisans.
A centuries-old tradition, the craft of Aubusson tapestry consists of weaving an image using processes practised in Aubusson and a number of other localities in the Creuse region of France.
Aubusson tapestry can be based on an image in any artistic style, prepared by a designer. Weaving is done manually by a lissier, or weaver, on a loom positioned horizontally, working on the reverse side of the tapestry, and using yarns that are hand-dyed in house.
This process is time-consuming and expensive. The Aubusson tapestries are a gold standard throughout the world, to the extent that Aubusson has become a common noun in some languages.
Baroque Still Life Style
The Baroque Still Life Style focuses on inanimate objects such as fruits, flowers, and everyday objects. The Still Life style became popular around 1650 and remained a popular subject to today.
