Hand-woven tapestry is made by running a bobbin back and forth in the area needed to create a design, not across the entire width of the fabric. Machine-made tapestry is jacquard woven to resemble handwoven tapestry. Heavier weft yarns are used creating a horizontal rib. Machine-made tapestry is not considered reversible.

Uses: Wall hangings, curtains, luggage, coats
