Table carpets were made using tent stitch on a linen ground and either silk or wool thread. As the name suggests, they were carpets that were made to be placed on tables or cupboards. Originally carpets were brought back from the East after the Crusades in the 11th century.

There are made surviving examples today, including perhaps the most famous, the Bradford Carpet.
