Originating from the French word “vert” or green, “verdures” first became popular in the 16th century. In the beginning, the distinctive design of the verdure featured highly detailed foliage. Over time, the foliage began to include landscapes, such as in Verdure Cascade tapestry. If you look in the background, you can see the Belgian Chateau d’Enghien in the distance, which was also known for its beautiful gardens. Even so, this verdure is true to its ancestors. The lush woods scene is the focus here, and is finely reproduced in all its original glory by skilled weavers. The depth and the variety of green shades in “Verdure Cascade” is remarkable. It is a testament to the enduring popularity of the verdure, or garden, tapestry. Verdure Cascade tapestry is lined and has a tunnel for easy hanging. Note: Tapestry rod and tassels, where pictured, are not included in the price.
