Antique rug style, Tapestry Flemish style wall decoration, decorative rug in the style of Aubusson.
Hand-knotted wool, vegetable dyed, hand-woven organic material, needlework and needlepoint. A similar technique is used for making the tapestry as in Aubusson.
Aubusson, a town on the river Creuse in central France, became a center of tapestry manufacturing in the 17th and 18th centuries during the reigns of Louis XIV and Louis XV. Aubusson became the source for the aristocracy, hence the typically monumental sizes of Aubusson rugs and tapestries. Employing a method known as “warping” and executed on a low horizontal loom, the weavers of Aubusson were able to create an illusion of depth in their works. Aubusson textiles are also usually identified by their stylized framing motifs and neoclassical themes.
