Tapestries were originally a decorative way to keep cold draughts out of grand homes. Today, with a growing trend for people to live in smaller houses, the tapestry market is a bit low, making it an ideal time to buy a tapestry which should increase in value as the market recovers and will prove a sound investment. Tapestries might feature unexpected subjects. In June 2007, Christie’s, London sold a 16th century tapestry fragment of a map of Gloucestershire for £78,000. It is one of the first tapestries ever produced in England, from the Sheldon Workshop.
