Jacobean Tapestry Table Runner

  • This ornate tapestry table runner has been woven by master Flemish weavers, giving an exceptionally fine but hard wearing weave.
    The design has been inspired by Jacobean embroidery. The William and Mary period is considered, by some, to be the finest period of domestic embroidery in England. Mary II, daughter of James II and wife of William III of Orange, was a 'born needle woman.'
    During this period furniture was just beginning to be comfortable, but, for some reason, nearly all upholstery was carried out in brocade or velvets, mainly imported from Genoa. By the end of the 17th Century chairs were beginning to be covered with needlework and the typical William & Mary chair, with its tall back, lent itself marvellously well to the bold designs of leaves and flowers.
    The tapestry requires no other maintenance other than a dry-dusting with a soft brush. If required please dry clean only.
    Fabrics by their nature are flexible; during storage, humidity and temperature may occasionally affect their shape and also cause creasing. To resolve this we recommend using a dry iron on a cotton setting. Lightly iron the tapestry (on the face) from the centre towards the edges. In very extreme cases the tapestry can be stretched by pulling the panel gently by hand diagonally to re-shape.
