The variety of medieval tapestry wall hangings
From the very beginning, medieval manufactories wove only religious tapestries, because they were in demand for the decoration of cathedrals and churches. Soon, it became popular to buy tapestries for castles and palaces. Other themes appeared: romantic scenes, so-called “minneteppich” (from German “Minne” – “love” and “Teppich” – “carpet, rug”), and various allegories.
Another popular medieval tapestry design is called “mille fleurs”. Such tapestries have a unique background, which seems to be woven from hundreds of little flowers. This technique has often been used for verdures and pastoral motifs.
