Tapestry Weaving

« Back to Glossary Index

Tapestry weaving is a form of textile art.   It may be woven by hand on a frame loom or on large upright tapestry looms.   Tapestry is weft-faced weaving covering all of the warp threads. In tapestry weaving, the weft yarns are typically discontinuous. The colored weft is interlaced back and forth in its own small pattern area. It is a plain weft-faced weave having weft threads of different colors worked over portions of the warp to form the design.
