De Wit Royal Tapestry Manufacture

Interesting
The De Wit Royal Manufacturers are installed in the magnificent setting of the former refuge of Tongerlo Abbey (15C). The guided tour takes in the workshops, where old tapestries are restored and modern ones created. A tapestry collection is displayed over several lovely rooms, showing how this art form has developed since 1500.
