    This brightly coloured tapestry work originates with the French weaver Bergerot of Cysoing. They commissioned the work with a Flemish design studio in the mid 1980s.

     

    The original point paper production number 107444 was created in 1985. The work has two panels, each with a very detailed table on the reverse detailing the 21 weaves allocated to the 6-warp coloured tapestry. The Bergerot mill used their tried and tested quality formula of weaves ref 8567 to weave this pattern on their study tapestry Jacquard fabric.

     

    The artist is anonymous but will have had a cheerful disposition judging by the brightly coloured paints they chose to create this striking artwork.

     

    The point paper was acquired in 2017 when the factory in Cysoing was being renovated after the weaver had ceased trading a few years earlier.
