This Tapestry Wall Hanging is a beautifully woven replica of the first in a series of 12 Tapestries called "The Hunts of Maximilian"; the best known Tapestry work from Bernard van Orley (born in Brussels).
Each represented a month of the year (March used to be the first month of the year) and depict hunting scenes in the forest of Soignes , near Brussels. The red horseman is believed to be Charles himself and in the background the Royal Palace of Brussels (which burned down in 1731) and various other Belgian landmarks are to be seen.
The original can be seen in the Louvre Museum, Paris, France and stands at over 4m tall. They were most likely commissioned by Emperor Charles V of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation and completed between 1528 and 1533.
A supreme quality Tapestry woven (not printed!) in Flanders, Belgium, using Jacquard Looms. Belgium has a long history of producing beautiful Tapestry art.
Hundreds of meters of dyed cotton, wool, or metallic threads are used to tightly weave a tapestry.
All our tapestries are lined with cotton on the back and feature a tunnel through which a pole or rod can be inserted for easy hanging. More details on how to hang your tapestry here.

About Our Tapestries
Our tapestries are woven in Flanders, Belgium, using Jacquard Looms. These looms are modern versions of those invented in the early 1800s by Joseph Marie Jacquard. These modern versions still use the same techniques invented 200 years ago.
Due to the nature of this manufacturing process, and the natural qualities of the materials used, each Tapestry is unique. Most of the tapestries are made from wool and cotton, so retain the same look and feel as the originals, yet benefit from modern synthetic fibres to add strength, stability and in some cases, metallic golden hints.
You can rest-assured that our tapestries are woven carefully and intricately, and are not just screen prints! They are bona fide woven replicas of original tapestry designs (many of which can be seen in museums all over the world), as well as some interesting new designs.
The back of each tapestry is lined with a cotton canvas, and features an information certificate.
Small and medium sized tapestries make great, eye-catching alternatives to hung pictures, and will certainly providing a talking point!
Please note that all sizes listed on this web site are approximate. Due to the natural materials used in tapestries, and the weaving process itself, sizes can vary by up to a few centimeters on the larger tapestries.
