tapestry weavers

Details

Refers to artisans who make tapestries, which are heavy wall hangings or other textiles characterized by ornamental or pictorial designs and woven by a process that differs from cloth-weaving in that the weft travels only to the warp at the edge of a particular color or pattern in the design, rather than traveling from edge to edge of the entire piece of fabric.
