Portiere Romantique - blue

Detailed Image
Portiere Romantique - blue 
French for “door”, the portiere was originally hung over a doorless entrance to a room. Though its origins have been lost over time, it’s believed to have arrived in Europe from China. It was first used in European homes in the 4th century. Like many other home accoutrements, it then came to England by way of France, where it was called a rideau de Porte. It was used for reducing the drafts in a room from the open doorway. Margaret Mitchell made the portiere part of literary history, when Scarlett O’Hara made a new dress from her mother’s green portieres. Similar to our cream version, this blue “Portiere Romantique” features the same design, woven into a quality, rich looking tapestry. This tapestry is lined and has a tunnel for easy hanging.

After only 2 weeks, my beautiful tapestry arrived! It is perfect, I just love it, and have had so many favourable comments from family and friends.

I am hooked, ...and currently am awaiting delivery of my 2nd order."


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

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."
