Tapestries are a form of a textile woven on vertical looms, although some are woven on floor-laying looms. How are tapestry wall hangings woven? Warp runs the length of the tapestry while weft is passed back and forth across the warp. Tapestries feature a weft-faced weaving. Warps are usually linen or cotton while weft are wool or cotton and can include silk, gold and silver.

Antique tapestries were originally woven for kings and noblemen so they could be easily rolled up and transported. They were used as wall hangings and hung in churches for special occasions and in castles for insulation during the winter and for decorative display. Most antique tapestries display symbols, emblems, coats of arms, and religious, mythological, or hunting scenes. European Tapestries, such as Flemish Tapestries of the 16th and 17th Centuries and French Tapestries, are among the most sought-after tapestries.

Samples of Greek tapestries have been found preserved in the Tarim Basin. They date back to the 3rd Century B.C. Tapestries reached a new stage in Europe around the 14th Century A.D. with their popularity in Germany and Switzerland. Over time, beautiful tapestries expanded to France and the Netherlands, but the tools for producing picturesque tapestries have remained the same over the years. William Morris resurrected the art of tapestry weaving around the 19th Century with tapestries woven for homes.

In early antique tapestries, isolated figures or compact groups stood out against a background that was generally plain or embellished with plant motifs or flowers. Tapestries then became more complex, depicting crowded battle scenes or large groups of figures arranged in tiers under architectural constructions. Later in the 16th Century, patrons chose to depict their favorite pastimes, hunting or peasants at work and play (often themselves in disguise). Then came fashionable pastoral landscapes in which estates were often depicted.

Tapestries and textiles have joined painting, sculpture and architecture as one of the major visual art forms.
