New Theme: Tapestry

We love blogging, and we know you do too, but we also have a special interest in making blogging lovely for your readers as well. It’s for that reason that we’ve taken a shine to Post Formats and themes that make good use of them. Themes like today’s new premium theme, Tapestry.

The Tapestry Theme

The Tapestry theme accounts for all 10 Post Formats available. How? Tapestry designers, StudioPress describe it this way: “You take pictures, you write stories and opinions, you make videos, you link to cool stuff all the time. Tapestry takes everything you make online, and makes perfect, beautiful sense of it.” With 10 unique icons and a compact layout Tapestry lets you blog your heart out while keeping everything neatly organized.

But that’s not all. Tapestry has options for selecting your layout, custom Widgets, a Custom Header, and a Custom Background. You can even control what content is shown in your blog archive pages. Interested? You can find more information on the Tapestry theme in our Theme Showcase or preview it live on your site from Appearance → Themes under the Premium tab.

    Nice theme, but I can’t help think that new themes on here are heading towards a more ‘Tumblr’ flavour and this is a prime example…

      We certainly do love Tumblelog themes (and Tapestry is definitely a prime example of the style) but we also love magazine themes, photo themes, serious themes, whimsical themes — you name it. :) We try and launch a variety so it’s easy for folks to find their perfect theme. If you have a theme suggestion of your own we’d love to hear it.

    Hmmm. No I am sorry, but that’s definately nothing for me! But it’s not worth, because I LOVE my recent theme :D
    It is the best. Great looking and easy handling.

    Is it $75 flat – or per year? And how would you rate this versus the previous magazine-style theme that just came out??…

    Like

    • Ian Stewart

      It’s a one-time, flat price, of $75. As far as rating against other themes goes, it’s really a question of what works best for your blog.

    It’s a neat looking theme, and those icons look cool – but for my kind of content (drawings and text) they won’t be very useful. Still happy with my Choco:) (And yes, the price-tag does make it look less appealing.)

    Drop the price point from $75 to $45 and I think that there would an even bigger buzz for this theme. I would definitely purchasing this if the price were lower. Also, this should have multiple color options as well given the fact that the theme is so versatile. Again, it would bring tons of blog folks on board.

    I don’t get why these things are so expensive!?!?! I am never going to pay $75 for a silly theme. Even if it is a one time thing. I could buy a video game or guitar accessory for that price.

    But for the actual theme, I like it. The price is terrible though. But, the past themes that you have made (recent ones) have not been very good according to me. This one is OK though. I think that something like the P2 theme. Some variation on that!

    What I’ve noticed is that all the themes with postformats are premium, whereas the ones without (or with just galleries and asides) are free. Kinda makes me glad I recently moved to self hosting… I love post formats but $75+ is a little steep to pay just for them.

    I am still looking for a blog theme which can be used by artists. A clean white one, witty, two column, artistic straight font but not to complex. A bright color like a catchy pink in a modern way.
