ProcessTapestries are usually woven from dyed wool threads by a Weaver, although there are many amateur tapestry weavers in the Realm. Tapestries are woven at a loom, and sometimes detailed with embroidery. Embroidery is a social activity, and is usually only done in winter when there is more free time.
Function and Use
The primary practical function of tapestries is to insulate houses during the winter. They are typically hung around the inside of a Roundhouse, and left up year round. Because roundhouses have open hearths, tapestries become stained by smoke over time and need to be replaced regularly.
Tapestries are also used in the Meeting House for spiritual purposes, as tapestries depicting the gods are hung above each god's altar.
