Flemish Tapestries - originally from FlandersDuring the Middle Ages and through the Hundred Years War, France was considered the world's most important producer of tapestry, with Paris being the tapestry capital of the western world. Unfortunately, during the Hundred Years War, with pillaging and unrest, many woven tapestry pieces were lost or burned for their precious metal content. Eventually tapestry artists, skilled dyers and tapestry craftsmen moved north towards Flanders into what today is called Holland and Belgium. Tapestries are produced in European factories utilizing high speed modern "computerized jacquard weaving" machines to produce their high quality tapestry reproduction products in large volumes as seen in the examples above. Most of these factories are located in Belgium, the Netherlands, and France, with a few in Italy.
