Tapestry is a specific textile construction: "a weft-faced plain weave with discontinuous weft patterning." Tapestry designs are formed by different colored (weft) yarns, which completely cover the foundation (warp) yarns. Other techniques, variations and materials are also combined by some artists to create contemporary tapestries. This category is for sites about handwoven tapestry, techniques, history and care, and about the artists who design and weave them.
