The history of tapestry art

The art of tapestry made from colourful threads has been practised for over 2000 years in many cultures around the world. By weaving threads together, an artist is able to record history, express feelings and visions by creating distinctive woven images with a textural dimension on a piece of tapestry.

The birth of Signare

In 2007 we dreamed if we could inject a modem twist into this ancient art form and bring it into our everyday life.  AND WE DID IT!

In 2008, we created our brand “Signare”. Meaning ‘signature’ in Latin. From the first product we have guaranteed that we strive for best quality and craftsmanship; we signed our commitment that our products are as individual as you and we signed our mission to create desirable and functional lifestyle products inspired by nature, great art and life itself that resonate with your pleasant memories and experience.

Each piece features a distinctive design that tells its own story and reflects the personality of its owners.

After 10 years of inspirational work, Signare has become a multinational company with exports to over 20 countries. We have established companies in the UK and USA. Signare is becoming the world's most popular tapestry art company on handbags and home furnishing accessories.

Signare supplies products to prestigious customers including the British Museum, Blenheim Palace and Westminster Abbey in the UK; the Huntington Library and the Smithsonian Institute in the USA; and the National Gallery of Canada – as well as many other international museums and visitor attractions.
