Felipe V of Spain founded the Royal Tapestry Factory in 1721. Since its establishment, in the face of the needs of manufacturing and restoration of tapestries of the Crown, the Royal Tapestry Factory was expanding its activity to the manufacture of carpets. By the nineteenth century, it was serving the noble, institutional, and in the twentieth century also moved to the restoration, conservation, and cleaning of carpets.

The King and Queen had the opportunity to see masters and artisans work with the same centuries-old techniques that have made the centennial factory an international benchmark. The couple began the visit in the Francisco Bayeu Room where the four panels were presented: History of the Royal Tapestry Factory, Tapestries, Carpets, and Restoration.
