Tapestry is, strictly speaking, a wallhanging or carpet woven with the tapestry technique instead of normal weaving.

See: Bayeux Tapestry and Aubusson

The term is commonly (though incorrectly) applied to embroidered items made in Canvas work or Needlepoint, probably because this type of embroidery mimics the woven effect.

Tapestry[?] is also an album by Carole King, released in 1971, and the name of a sixth-season episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
