Man has always been exploring the world beyond his own shores, due to his natural curiosity.

But when the age of nautical exploration in the 17th century arrived, there was a huge growth in the art of world map making or cartography. Looking at an old world map tapestry is a journey through time.

In the beginning of 17th century, there were large areas of terra incognita (‘unknown lands’), and these areas were ‘filled in' with decorative effects including wildlife and mythical sea creatures. Then as knowledge of distant lands improved, these decorations were placed more on the periphery.

Here’s a fine collection of ancient world map tapestries and wall hangings for you to explore. They are fascinating historical documents that add an element of intrigue to any home.

Ordered a tapestry to very short timescales just before Christmas... not expecting to receive before the New Year. Extremely surprised when it arrived just before Christmas during all the really snowy weather

...& even more surprised at the high quality of the tapestry. I am now about to place an order for another tapestry for my daughter's 18th birthday.

Highly recommended!

David, England

"I would like to just say that the service and the quality of the tapestry I've recently purchased are exceptional.

The photos are exactly as the actual physical item received.

Might possibly be a returning customer, just need to see if I can find any more space in the house. Thank you for a great service."
