Based on Seventeenth Century tile paintings - this collection includes eight different designs ( kits ) - joined together - after stitching each individual tapestry.

Each design is painted on Zweigart Canvases - 10 mesh / count / hpi - with two extra inches surrounding each painted canvas ( for blocking and finishing ).

A very popular Collection - these historical 17th Century tile paintings from Talavera de la Reina - Spain -- have been carefully adapted into needlework tapestries - and may be joined together to make a rug - or carpet. The twenty-two colors have been very carefully matched to the original tiles. The original tile paintings were interpreted - by adding a tad more dimension ( using additional color tones ) - yet maintain the naive lightness of the freehand painted strokes.

Available as needlepoint rug kits or canvases ( not kitted ) - if you plan to stitch this entire rug - we encourage the acquisition of the eight kits at once - to insure that the dye lots of our tapestry wool match and that all the canvases are cut from the same bolt.
