Seventeenth Century ceramic tile paintings - the Trades of Talavera Collection are eight needlepoint designs - joined together - into a wall hanging.
The Talavera minerals - pigments used in making the tin-glaze are reknown for their unique - splendid colors.
A central motif - was stitched four times - before we found the colors to successfully resemble the colors of the original tiles.
Interpreting freehand paint strokes into dots of colored fibers is also a challenging process - until the final piece showed - again - that the tile paintings were adapted successfully.
Available as Needlepoint Wall Hanging Kits or canvases ( not kitted ) - if you plan to stitch this entire tapestry - we do encourage the acquisition of the eight kits at once - to insure that all the canvases are cut from the same bolt and that the dye lots of our tapestry wool match.
To acquire the eight canvases ( not kitted ) - please visit - RENAISSANCE NEEDLEPOINT CANVASES
