The Unicorn in Captivity - Unicorn Tapestries - Vintage Fabric

Recently I found a vintage fabric that is my Favorite Vintage Fabric of the Week!

Known as The Unicorn in Captivity, this fabric is based on a series of medieval Unicorn Tapestries from 1495-1505, and is based on religious symbolism. The tapestries are housed at The Cloisters in New York, a branch of The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The fabric is on Revival Fabrics right now.

To read more about the incredible Unicorn Tapestries series, visit the MOMA website. Below is a photo of The Unicorn in Captivity tapestry at the MOMA
