A woven tapestry from Brussels, depicting King David and Bathsheba

The tapestry, otherwise known as an Arras or Gobelins, after places of manufacture, is a handwoven wall hanging with a non-repetitive, pictorial pattern. 

The technique is based on weaving and picking in the threads from the reverse side. A tapestry of this kind is usually woven on a high-warp loom.
