In 1996, the manufacturing becomes the Royal Tapestry Factory Foundation. Its aims must be the maintenance of crafts, the conservation and restoration of the textile heritage of the Spanish State and the promotion in general of all cultural activities that contribute to the knowledge of the art of upholstery.
The venue is ideally located in the city centre, close to train station Atocha.
