The embroidery stich used in the Bayeux tapestry

Changer la taille des caractères :   agrandir agrandir diminuer

This embroidery stich comes from the Norman and English tradition. It was used in the famous Bayeux Tapestry which is said done by queen Mathilda in the 11th century. This embroidery is roughly 76 yards long and listed on UNESCO's Memory of the World Register. The Bayeux Tapestry tells the story of the Norman conquest of England by duke William and his men at Hastings on the 14th of October 1066.

An outline stich is embroidered to make the drawings as well as the letters. These drawings are filled with , or "couloured" with stich threads (couchure): see explication of the stich inside each kit of embroidery (F/GB).
The tapestry is embroidered on a linen with woollen thread in 6 dominant coulours.

The tapestry was probably made in an Anglo-Saxon studio on the request of Odon de Conteville, bishop of Bayeux and William the Conquerors half-brother. It was supposed to legitimate the Norman power in England. This longue piece of comic-strip mediated the message to the people mostly illiterate.

The Bayeux Tapestry is now exposed in William the Conqueror Museum in Bayeux, Calvados.
