We will be stocking an increasing number of Tramme designs, but the range will change from time to time, some of the designs are 'one-offs', never to be repeated. This canvas is from a collection that has been hand made in Madeira. We stock the full range of Anchor Tapestry Wool, if you need any help with the wool required for the background or would like us to send you an Anchor Tapestry Wool shade card (PDF version), please let us know.

What is 'Tramme?'

Tramme, pronounced tram'me or tra-may, also spelt Tramé (commonly referred to as Trammed). Tramme is a traditional type of tapestry (or needlepoint) on which the design is laid out on the canvas using horizontal, long-stitched lines of 2 ply wool yarn. This is done by hand through the small holes, on the 'Penelope' (or French) double thread canvas, in the appropriate colours, instead of being painted or printed. This makes it very easy to work out which colour of wool to use, working through the larger holes in the normal way using half-cross stitch with the yarns included. This form of needlework is ideally suited to furnishing uses (cushions/pillows, chair/stool seats and backs) because of its hard-wearing properties.

Trammed Tapestry

 

Traditional trammed, or tramé, tapestry canvases are incredibly flexible since you can choose whatever background colour you want to match your decor. Also, you can usually vary the size of the stitched area making them ideal for upholstery. Most designs can be trammed onto larger canvases if necessary, for a particular project.

 

Some sophisticated trammed canvases have some areas pre-worked in petit point to bring out details in the design. Petit point is worked as the canvas is being trammed by using the DUO canvas as a conventional weave canvas, so each stitch is quarter the normal size.

 

All the trammed or tramé tapestries we stock are produced on the island of Madeira, home of trammed tapestry for hundreds of years, so you can be assured you will be getting only the very highest quality canvas to work. Tramé produced in Madeira is rigorously checked before being given approval for export by the Institute of Embroidery and Needlework based in the island's capital Funchal.
