A reproduction of “Soul Of The Rose” by John William Waterhouse (1849-1917).

John William Waterhouse was an English Pre-Raphaelite painter who is most famous for his paintings of female characters from Greek and Arthurian mythology.  In 1908 he painted this exquisite painting inspired by the poetry of Lincolnshire born poet laureate, Alfred, Lord Tennyson.

There is a garden in her face, where roses and lilies grow; A heavenly paradise is that place, where in all pleasant fruits do flow.

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.
