A Unique Work of Art
Work of art tapestries should be unique, and when you purchase yours from Maximo Laura, that is just what you will get.
Your tapestry will be made just for you. When you have chosen your favorite tapestry design, work will begin on it. The weaver that is assigned to you is one of the best contemporary tapestry weavers and has been trained in the techniques and styles by Maximo Laura to create these masterpieces.
To get the best finish on your tapestry, only one weaver will work on your project from beginning to end. We do this because while all our weavers are trained in Maximo’s style, different hands can mean that there are slight changes in movements and tensions, and therefore, you would be able to see where the weavers have changed in the finished tapestry.
To further ensure the uniqueness of Maximo’s tapestries, we use the millenary technique in our weaving. This gives the finished product a 3D effect which just begs to be explored by both eyes and hands. By using blended yarns rather than solid colored yarns that are traditionally used, our weavers achieve this unique finish that sets our tapestries apart. The effect is so realistic that from far away, they can even look like a painting.
