Because this tapestry is woven in a slit tapestry technique, wherever there is a straight line upwards, the two parts are not bound together. Therefore small bows are used to tie the two parts together to avoid a lot of tension when the tapestry is cut down from the loom. The ties are later taken away and the slits are hand-sewn together at the back of the tapestry.
