Tapestries were often known by the name of their city or factory of origin. In Hamlet, Polonius hides (and is stabbed) behind the Arras; Arras is a town in northern France famous for tapestry production. Similarly, one might speak of a fine Gobelins, if the tapestry was made at the Royal (now State) factory in Paris. Notes: 1: Polonius could hide behind the Arras because tapestries were hung about a foot from the wall, to keep them out of the rising damp. 2: Note that tapestry is woven, not stitched. Other decorative fabrics, such as petit point or Berlin work, are sometimes mistakenly referred to as tapestry.
There are no plans for the Bayeux Tapestry to visit England at any time in the foreseeable future. However, a full-size replica of it was made by the wife of textile manufacturer Thomas Wardle in collaboration with William Morris, which was completed in 1886 and is currently in the Museum of Reading in Berkshire.
