Tapestry is a form of textile art, traditionally woven on a vertical loom. Tapestries are mostly found in high quality museums. Tapestry is weft-faced weaving, in which all the warp threads are hidden in the completed work, unlike cloth weaving where both the warp and the weft threads may be visible. In tapestry weaving, weft yarns are typically discontinuous; the artisan interlaces each coloured weft back and forth in its own small pattern area. It is a plain weft-faced weave having weft threads of different colours worked over portions of the warp to form the design.
Most weavers use a natural warp thread, such as linen or cotton. The weft threads are usually wool or cotton, but may include silk, gold, silver, or other alternatives.
First attested in English in 1467, the word tapestry derives from Old Frenchtapisserie, from tapisser, meaning "to cover with heavy fabric, to carpet", in turn from tapis, "heavy fabric", via Latintapes (GENtapetis), which is the latinisation of the Greekτάπης (tapēs; GEN τάπητος, tapētos), "carpet, rug". The earliest attested form of the word is the Mycenaean Greek𐀲𐀟𐀊, ta-pe-ja, written in the Linear Bsyllabary.
Tapestry emphasizes simplicity, ease of use, and developer productivity. It adheres to the Convention over Configuration paradigm, eliminating almost all XML configuration. Tapestry uses a modular approach to web development, by having a strong binding between each user interface component (object) on the web page and its corresponding Java class. This component-based architecture borrows many ideas from WebObjects.

Tapestry uses bytecode manipulation to transform page and component classes at runtime. This approach allows the page and component classes to be written as simple POJOs, with a few naming conventions and annotations potentially triggering substantial additional behavior at class load time. Tapestry versions 5.0, 5.1 and 5.2 used the Javassist bytecode manipulation library. Subsequent versions replaced Javassist with a new bytecode manipulation layer called Plastic which is based on ObjectWeb ASM.
Tapestry was the title of a Canadian, syndicated FM radio program of the late 1970s and early to mid-1980s, hosted by Charlotte O'Dell (Dulmage, 2011). The program, produced by CHFI-FM Toronto, consisted of folk, soft rock, and pop music selections, interspersed with O'Dell's musings and readings of poetry and prose. Episodes were thematic (e.g., the moon, Christmas), and aired between 11:00 PM and 12:00 AM on CHFI, and also on stations such as CKLM Windsor and CKXM Edmonton.
My life has been a tapestry Of rich and royal hue An ever lasting vision Of the ever-changing view A wonderous woven magic In bits of blue and gold A tapestry to feel and see, Impossible to hold Once amid the soft and silver sadness in the sky There came a man of fortune, a drifter passing by He wore a torn and tattered cloth around his leathered hide And a coat of many colors, yellow green on either side He moved with some uncertainty as if he din't know Just what he was there for or where he ought to go Once he reached for something golden hanging from a tree And his hand came down empty Soon within my tapestry along the rutted road He sat upon on a river rock and turned into a toad It seem that he had fallen into someone's wicked spell And I wept to see him suffer,though I didn't know him well As I watched in sorrow, then suddenly appeared A figure grey and ghostly beneath a flowing beard In time of deepest darkness I've seen him dressed in black Now my tapestry's unravelling;
