The theme represents the departure of two of the Knights of the Round Table, from the ancient legends of King Arthur, being Sir Gawaine of Orkney and Sir Hector de Marys. Against a background of a dark and perilous forest, the ladies of the Court of Camelot are bidding adieu to the mounted knights, who are departing on their expedition.

This tapestry was designed by Edward Burne-Jones and William Morris and was woven by Morris & Company in their studio at Merton Abbey, Surrey, around 1895.

The mille-fleurs (thousand flowers) in the foreground was designed by J.H. Dearle and is derived from medieval tapestries, providing a gothic atmosphere to the scene. Although the theme is not intended to depict any particular period of history, the costumes are based on styles from the Middle Ages, the Arthurian legends having evolved over a long period of time.

The art of weaving tapestries had almost died out in England until it was revived by William Morris in the last quarter of the 19th Century. Commissioned around 1895, this subject represents the climax of the cooperation of Morris and Burne-Jones in the revival of tapestry weaving.

This beautiful tapestry is woven on a jacquard loom by skilled weavers, keeping alive the centuries old tradition of tapestry manufacturing from generation to generation. This tapestry is fully lined incorporating a sleeve along the top for hanging with a Hines hanging rod. Alternatively, this tapestry can be hung with a wooden batten which is a concealed method of hanging.

How to hang a tapestry

Tapestries are very simple to hang in your home.  There are a two options for you to choose from which are explained below.

Decorative Tapestry Hanging Rod

Choose from two finial options, Black Spear or Brass Fleur de Lys to hang your tapestry.  Simply slide your hanging rod through the rod pocket that is sewn along the top edge of the back of the tapestry so that the finials and some of the black bar is showing either side.  (You can have as much or as little of the back bar as you wish showing as the hanging rods are telescopic).

Once you are happy with where you want the tapestry to hang, mark on the wall through the eyelets on each finial where you need to drill the wall.  Then simply drill and plug both holes and then screw your tapestry to the wall.

Hines tapestry hanging rods are specially designed to be flush-mounted to the wall securing the tapestry in the best way possible to ensure that it looks great for years to come.

Obscure Wooden Batten

If you would rather fix your tapestry to the wall without any decorative rod you need to select a wooden batten when adding your tapestry to the basket.  Each batten is cut to size specifically for your tapestry and works on the same principle as a decorative hanging rod with a pre-drilled hole at each end to fix to the wall.

All decorative hanging rods and wooden battens from Hines come with screws and plugs and a set of instructions how to fit to your wall.
