Tapestries can be among the most beautiful objects in a wide selection of art collection. Not only do they add variety to an interesting art collection, they also can be good enough to care and preserve for posterity. But just like any other piece of art, tapestries also need to be taken cared of. Tapestries can easily be subjected to the most abuse as well as being threatened by the harsh elements. That is why caring for antique tapestries can be a time consuming job and may take a bit of expertise.

The term tapestry was originally used to describe those ancient coverings for furniture, tapestries has generally been divided between two areas of notable origin, the Asian as well as the Western types of tapestries. Asian tapestries are known to be older and more opulent with the long tradition of the craft started from early makers located in central Asia, the Middle East, India, and China.
