Based on Seventeenth Century tile paintings - the *TRADES OF TALAVERA* collection includes eight different designs ( kits ) - joined together - after stitching and blocking each individual tapestry.
Each of the eight Needlepoint Rug Kits designs is painted on Zweigart Canvases - 10 mesh / count / hpi - with two extra inches surrounding each painted canvas ( for blocking and finishing ).
These historical 17th Century tile paintings from Talavera de la Reina - Spain -- have been carefully translated into needlework - and may be joined together to make a rug - or carpet. The twenty-two colors have been meticously matched to the original tiles. The original tile paintings were interpreted - by adding a bit more dimension ( using additional color tones ) - yet maintain the lightness of the freehand painted strokes.
Available as needlepoint rug kits or canvases ( not kitted ) - if you plan to stitch this entire rug - we encourage the acquisition of the eight kits at once - to insure that the dye lots of our tapestry wool match and that all the canvases are cut from the same bolt.
To acquire the eight canvases ( not kitted ) - please visit - RENAISSANCE NEEDLEPOINT CANVASES
