The color Verdure blue
is inspired by the beautiful blue colour, which can be found in the verdure tapestries. A classic verdure is known for the game between sun and shade, it's filled with decorative foliage (creating depth in the work) and small figures (a unicorn or the skyline of a big Medieval city). Verdure rugs have created a huge growth in the Flemish tapestry, particularly in Oudenaarde, Geraardsbergen and Enghien. From the fifteenth to eighteenth century tapestries were Oudenaard's main luxury products. The most famous tapestry is 'Works of Hercules'.
