This jacquard tapestry pillow cover, Elephant, is imported from Europe. It shows an exotic Asian elephant covered with rich carpets and ornaments. Companion piece to this one is #889 Camel. This panel is inspired from a famous 19th century tapestry on display in the Louvre Museum in Paris. It was woven at a carpet factory in Aubusson established by Alexis Sallandrouze, 1808-67. The design, attributed to Jean-Baptiste-Amedee Couder, 1797-1864, draws on a number of different sources. By introducing these exotic influences, the tapestry contributed to a revival of the decorative arts in France in the 1840's. The luxuriant landscape is framed by pairs of twisted columns. The ornamental border is very rich, composed of a dense, complex tracery recalling the decorative vocabulary of Islamic architecture. Beyond this architectural frame lies a luminous landscape in which an Asian elephant can be seen passing between a palm and a banana tree. The elephant, richly caparisoned from top to toe. The tapestry may have been part of a set representing the continents.

I recently bought our second tapestry from Quality Tapestries. I was not disappointed! The tapestry is good quality. We enjoy the warmth the tapestries add to our bedroom, and the affordable price allows us to change décor with the seasons. I find the web site easy to use, and have several tapestries on my wish list.

Ordered two tapestries and both were perfect. I had a question for customer service and they were beyond helpful. I've never had better customer service. All of their products were excellent! I am now a loyal customer.

This company makes STUNNING tapestries to order. It may take a couple of weeks, but the wait is TOTALLY worth it. The quality is absolutely amazing. I own several antique tapestries, and the quality of these rivals any one of them.
