Product Description

PROVENANCE: never-sold, mint condition Encanto Tapestries from the 1960s. These are my parents' legacy, unique, collectible, rare and archivally preserved for over 50 years. We are gradually adding this inventory to Amazon as we process them. Once this collection is sold, that's all there is. They are as brilliant as they day they were made. The story of Encanto Tapestries begins in the late 1930s, when my parents, David and Léa met, while attending The Royal Academy of Fine Arts in in Antwerp, Belgium. Fleeing the Nazis, they and most of their immediate family arrived in New York in 1939. My dad joined the US Army and fought in the Pacific Theater. In 1963 we three left New York for Madrid, Spain. We, all, loved it there. David became fascinated with the fine Spanish wool used in making the traditional cloaks "capas." From 1300 on, wool had become central to the Spanish economy. David developed Encanto Tapestries, incorporating the brilliantly colored Spanish wool felts, Spanish themes and heraldic imagery. David and Léa, using their own and other notable artists' design skills, created the designs. They recall the traditions and pageantry of Spain: escutcheons, banners, flags, shields and crests, with the added twist of Mid-century Modern design. In the sixties and seventies, these sold in stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale's, Bergdorf Goodman, Macy's, Lord & Taylor, Brentano's and Neiman-Marcus. David and Léa stayed on in Madrid until the 1990s, and joined me in Portland in 2000, bringing along the remaining Encanto inventory. My parents passed away in the late 2000s, in their nineties. If you appreciate Mid-Century Modern ("Sixties art," OP Art, Vasarely, Marimekko, Milton Glaser, HBO's "Madmen" decor) these will complement your home or office decor. Consider using for interior design work, restaurants, cafés, B&Bs and Airbnbs. Please visit us often to see more Encanto Tapestries as we continue to explore and post the remaining inventory backlog.

Features & Highlights

  • For home, office, as a gift: original, authentic artworks, Encanto Tapestries are perfect accents for Mid Century Modern, Sixties-themed interiors ("Madmen," "Op/Pop Art"). Add excitement and color to your home, office, Bed & Breakfast and public spaces; also a great resource for interior decorators, set designers and prop masters. They sold originally at Brentano's, Neiman-Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Lord & Taylor, Saks Fifth Avenue and more. Most of the designs are specific to one size.
  • The Story of Encanto Tapestries: David and Léa Poliat established Encanto Tapestries in 1964. They and a team of artists incorporated Spanish themes into a "Mid Century Modern" style.  Popular from between 1965-1972, they sold in major stores and galleries in the US and elsewhere. All production ended by 1972. This is the balance of never-sold inventory, in mint condition and stored for 45 years. We continue to unpack and post more of the Tapestry inventory, so please visit us regularly.
  • Cockfight. Raising fighting poultry goes back millennia. Magellan's chronicler reported Europeans' first sighting of cockfighting in the Philippines in 1521. Roosters are a favorite subject in Spanish art, from the Middle Ages to Picasso. Typical of real cockfights, these two contenders puff themselves to appear as threatening as possible. The dynamic action is echoed by the vivid colors.
  • How are they made? Encanto Tapestries are made from virgin wool felt with a palette of over 60 colors. Each tapestry is assembled from the felt parts, like a puzzle, and every piece follows the flow of the design. The tapestries are available as: 1.  A finished, ready-to-display tapestry OR, 2. As a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Tapestry Puzzle Package, which you assemble, then iron onto the adhesive backing. Flip it over and that's it! Display your Encanto as a banner or framed.
  • Your Purchase Includes:  1. One Encanto Tapestry 2. A certificate of authenticity with Tapestry ID and provenance, signed by Frank Poliat 3. An illustrated brochure (great when gifting), telling the Story of Encanto and its creators, David and Léa Poliat 4. A guide to displaying your Encanto tapestry, including the best options for hanging or framing.
