Rennie & Rose designs and manufactures the finest tapestry and jacquard goods. Rennie & Rose was founded in 1989 by Lisa Rose and her mother Charlotte Rennie.

From a modest start hand crafting each item on Charlotte's dining room table, The Rennie & Rose line now consists of handbags, accessories, apparel and the At Home Collection.

Over 20 years they have come a long way from sewing on that dining room table but, Rennie & Rose haven't forgotten their original philosophy: functional and fashionable styles, the finest quality fabrics and materials, the very best workmanship. Always, made in the USA.

Tapestry is a form of textile art, traditionally woven on a vertical loom, however it can also be woven on a floor loom as well. It is composed of two sets of interlaced threads, those running parallel to the length (called the warp) and those parallel to the width (called the weft); the warp threads are set up under tension on a loom, and the weft thread is passed back and forth across part or all of the warps.

Tapestry is weft-faced weaving, in which all the warp threads are hidden in the completed work, unlike cloth weaving where both the warp and the weft threads may be visible. In tapestry weaving, weft yarns are typically discontinuous; the artisan interlaces each colored weft back and forth in its own small pattern area. It is a plain weft-faced weave having weft threads of different colours worked over portions of the warp to form the design.

Most weavers use a naturally based warp thread such as linen or cotton. The weft threads are usually wool or cotton, but may include silk, gold, silver, or other alternatives.
