Elizabethan is frequently influenced by floral designs seen in embroidery period. Worked in color, or in black thread on white cloth which is known as black-work. Variations on stylized roses were most common and were usually distributed in regular symmetrical columns.
TTableaus reproduced from Late-Medieval style tapestries occasionally appear, but it is more common to see motifs reproduced from wall-cloths. The Elizabethan Era saw unprecedented growth of the middle class, and these homeowners had enough disposable income to decorate their homes in fashionable textiles.
The wall cloth was the predecessor of modern wall-paper and, unlike tapestries, usually featured abstract flourishes rather than scenic landscapes with human and animal figures.
