Copies of tapestry (4)


I believe the answer is:

'copies' is the definition.
('ape' can be a synonym of 'copy')

'of tapestry' is the wordplay.
'of' indicates a hidden word.
'APES' is hidden within 'tapestry'.

(Other definitions for apes that I've seen before include "Copies the primates?", "Zoo animals", "Peas (anag)", "Species of primate", "Imitates like primates".)

I've seen this clue in Mirror.
