Inspired by the German poem "Ehret Die Frauen" ("Honour the Women") by Schiller (1796), this tapestry was designed by Marianne Stokes of Morris & Co, and Woven by John Martin and Gorden Berry in 1912.

A quotation from the poem appears at the top "Ehret die Frauen sie flechten und weben - himmlische rosen ins irdische Leben" and translates to "Honour the women, they broid and weave heavenly roses into earthly life." Labels are above or below each figure, reading "Protection" (Schutz), "Care" (Pflege), "Love" (Liebe) ,"Knowledge" (Wissen) and "Fidelity" (Treue).

The original is in the Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester.

A supreme quality Tapestry woven (not printed!) in Flanders, Belgium, using Jacquard Looms. Belgium has a long history of producing beautiful Tapestry art.

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.
