Contemporary Tapestry Weaving specializes the making of authentic hand-woven tapestries that are designed and created by fine-art tapestry artist Ulrika Leander.
Beginning with the creation of a water-color design and continuing through the timeless process of weaving on a high-warp loom, each tapestry is a unique creation using the highest quality natural fibers. These designs are never repeated.
Ulrika Leander works primarily through commission and has established a reputation throughout the US and Scandinavia for her sophisticated, site-specific designs, which are characterized by her brilliant use of color and top-quality craftsmanship.
Please browse the site and enjoy images of the large-scale tapestries that Ulrika has designed and woven over the years, for various locations such as corporate and public buildings, health care facilities, churches, private homes, and more.
Tapestries are frequently referred to as wall hangings or wall tapestries. However, these terms are also used in referring to textile crafts such as quilts, hooking, appliqué, embroidered work and banners, which are not true fine-art tapestry. It is important for the buyer to be able to distinguish between these different art-forms.
