Didier Marien created this collection over the years. It reflects his taste for this centuries-long art.
Tapestries have always played an important role, reflecting the elegance, knowledge and power of the owner.
Today tapestries have more a decorative and historic value. A tapestry creates an atmosphere that no other objects are able to provide.
This collection is a selection of the most original and rarest pieces, having survived for centuries without suffering the ravages of time.
We guarantee these works for a period of ten years and we issue a certificate of authenticity with each piece.
