Tapestries & Wall HangingsDecorative & Still-Life

The Woodpecker tapestry wall hanging is:

  • Made at Adorabella in Australia.
  • Fully jacquard tapestry woven from cotton thread. The woven design creates a higher quality image that is superior to printed versions.
  • Fully lined with a coordinating cotton fabric.
  • Includes a "channel" sewn into the top of the tapestry to allow for the tapestry rod to be easily inserted for hanging. 
  • Includes a continuous aluminium weight stabilization bar* sewn into the bottom of the tapestry (that helps minimize distortion of the tapestry when hung).

The Woodpecker tapesty is inspired by the tapestry of the same name designed  in 1885 by William Morris (1834-1896) and is inspired by the legend of Picas an ancient king of Italy who rebutted the seductive charms of Circe who as an act of revenge transformed Picas into a woodpecker. The Gothic inscription within the tapestry states: "I once a king and chief, Now am the tree-bark's thief, Ever 'twixt trunk and leaf, Chasing the prey".

Care & Cleaning: This wall hanging is made with the highest quality of materials and as the design is fully jacquard woven (not printed), and is therefore completely dry-cleanable. The tapestry can be ironed, steam-cleaned, spot-cleaned and "scotch-guarded" if required. 

Recommended Hanging Rod: Fleur De Lys - Antique Gold, Small
