Tapestry Tricks in the Loire Valley

Can you tell what is wrong with these tapestries? Or at least, one of them.

If you would like to find out more about the history and modern conservation of tapestries, then book a tour with us. We can include tapestries in a more general tour of the chateaux (Chenonceau, Cheverny and Langeais have especially good tapestries) or you can choose a more indepth niche tour that just concentrates on tapestries. Either way you would learn what the problem with the tapestry on the left is, and what was being done about it.
