tapestry (process) (textile weaving processes and techniques, <textile construction processes and techniques>, ... Processes and Techniques (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Refers to the process used to create tapestries, which are heavy, woven textiles characterized by ornamental or pictorial designs and used as wall hangings, curtains, upholstery, or to hang from windows or balconies. The process is performed on a tapestry loom and differs from cloth-weaving in that the weft travels only to the warp at the edge of a particular color or pattern in the design, rather traveling from edge to edge of the entire piece of fabric. Various techniques are used in mixing and overlaying colors to create shading and patterns. Details of the design are often painted or embroidered.

Additional Notes:
Chinese (traditional) ..... 製造繡帷的過程;繡帷為厚重的編織織品,以裝飾性或圖畫式設計為特色,多作為牆壁掛毯、窗簾、墊襯物,或掛在窗戶或陽台邊。綴織以繡帷織機進行,與布料編織不同,其緯線停至設計中某顏色或圖樣邊的經線,而非穿過整片布料的兩邊。也採用各式各樣的技巧混合重疊色彩,創造出明暗變化與圖案。設計的細節多採用繪製或刺繡的方式處理。 
Dutch ..... Verwijst naar het procedé van het maken van zware wandtapijten, geweven stoffen die worden gekenmerkt door ornamentele of picturale dessins en die aan muren worden gehangen, gordijnen, stoffering, of stoffen om aan vensters of balkons te hangen. Het procedé wordt uitgevoerd op een weefgetouw voor tapijten en verschilt van het weven van overige stoffen doordat de inslag alleen naar de schering gaat aan de rand van een bepaalde kleur of een bepaald patroon in het dessin, en niet van de ene naar de andere rand van de hele stof gaat. Er wordt gebruik gemaakt van verschillende technieken voor het mengen en laten overlappen van kleuren om schaduwen en patronen te creëren. Details van het dessin worden vaak beschilderd of geborduurd. 
Spanish ..... Refiérase al proceso usado para crear las tapicerías pesadas, los textiles tejidos ornamentales o los paños que cubrían las paredes, cortinas, tapicería, o los que se tendían de ventanas o de balcones. El proceso se realiza en un telar de tapicería y diferencia del telar de dimensiones más pequeñas, este telar se realiza bajo un patrón particular de diseño. Las diversas técnicas se utilizan con colores que se mezclan y se sobreponen para crear sombras y figuras. Los detalles del diseño se pintan o se bordan en algunas de ellas.
