The magnificant Holy Grail tapestry, woven by William Morris and his Company Morris & Co. around 1895. The full tapestry depicts the knights of the Round Table preparing to embark of their quest for the Holy Grail. One can also see Lady Guinevere handing Sir Lancelot his shield; a symbolic representation of their affair.

Edward Burne-Jones (a founding partner of Morris & Co.) designed the figures in the tapestry, with Morris himself taking care of the heraldry. The piece was part of series of 6 panels commissioned by Stanmore Hall based around the story of the Holy Grail.

The original is proudly displayed in the Birmingham museum, and this is a truly stunning replica of the piece.

Contains silver thread woven to add depth to the detail.

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.
