A reproduction of the stained glass from Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford, designed by Edward Burne-Jones (1833-98).
This graceful wall tapestry has been woven in a wool blend on a Jacquard loom by Master Flemish weavers. It has been faithfully reproduced from a stained glass window in Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford designed by Edward Burne-Jones and made by the William Morris Company. Burne-Jones and William Morris met whilst at Oxford taking Holy Orders. Here they gained inspiration from the writings of Ruskin and decided they wanted to become artists. Ruskin saw the work of Rosetti and the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood as “the dawn of a new era of art”.
Traditional Tapestries were established in 1991 by husband and wife team, Colin and Catherine. Their workshops and office complex utilise a large converted barn nestling in the Cornish countryside. They are family business employing a local skilled workforce.
All of the tapestry panels and fabrics are imported direct from Master Flemish Weavers, who use modern electronic Jacquard looms utilizing the latest computer technology to create the finest high quality designs. Many designs are reproduced from ancient medieval tapestries, although several new creations are inspired from contemporary art forms. The unfinished tapestry panels are then sent to the UK where they are made into elegant wall tapestries, cushions and bags.
