Printed onto our signature British cotton velvet, each one is a unique piece.
The buttons and beads (some her grandmothers) are antique and the 'Molluscs' are hand spun 'singles' (not plied) using mulberry silk which has been hand dyed, stiffened and formed using gold thread and cotton neps.
Other additions are made using recycled vintage sari silk and hand spun hand dyed wool from British breeds of sheep, stiffened and formed. The Tapestry is then finished with a charcoal coloured, hand dyed ruche trim.
'Galliot' is also available as an unadorned Velvet Wall Hanging and as a 'custom fit'
