Caracteristics:

Needleworked rugs are a challenge to the researcher of historical textiles. Used as both wallhangings and floorcoverings, they are often overlooked in discussions of carpets and tapestries. Named for the town in central Portugal where the technique has remained popular of Portugal it is difficult to pinpoint the exact origins of the Arraiolos technique on the Iberian peninsula. Similar techniques are found in other parts of the Continent as early as the 13th century. Handworked needle rugs are found in the paintings of Holbein, famous for his Tudor era portraiture. A needleworked tablecarpet was given to Elizabeth I as a gift in the late 1500s.
