Original photographic artwork by Assaf Frank. He exhibited an eye for photography as a young boy, but it wasn’t until he was attending university that his talents were truly noticed. Well travelled, Assaf’s work touches on people and their lives across the world. His attention to detail, patience and his easy rapport with people make him a truly outstanding photographer. This image gave the tapestry weaver so much stunning beauty to work with, allowing them to create a stunning tapestry versio, capturing the true qualities of Assaf’s work.
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.
