The Craye family’s weaving workshop was founded around the Year 1880 in the tapestry historic birthplace area of Flanders where it still pursues the famous tradition of master weavers in this region. Craye naturally came to specialize in the reproduction of wall tapestries by recreating the style of weaving from the 14th & 15th Centuries, but they also worked on a wide selection of adapted paintings of all times. We selected in this rich collection the most beautiful pieces which have been created, going from the Medieval period to the Art nouveau by way of the Romantic and the Impressionism.
