This is the time of year for tapestries! New apartments, new dorm rooms, new bedrooms-they are a great way to decorate! Tapestries come in all styles- traditional prints, modern prints and even psychedelic prints. Many are 3D to give it that dimensional look when using the 3D glasses. Some are even glow in the dark. Many of our tapestries come with corner loops to prolong the life of the tapestry when hanging on the wall or ceiling. Music licenses from such bands as the Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, Bob Marley, Janis Joplin and Sublime often make up the designs. 

Some tapestries can also be very eloquent, lending themselves to a more sophisticated decor. Beautiful handcrafted designs with embroidery, sequins and gold and silver thread. I have one that I use as runner on my dining room table that looks great! Give your home a bohemian flare with any of the traditional India prints.

Tapestries can be used many ways. The most common use is as a wall hanging. Their large size makes it an economical way to cover a wall. Bed covers are also a great use! Other uses include beach blankets, ceiling hangings, furniture covers, curtains and table cloths. Be creative-they can even be used in halloween costumes!

When choosing a tapestry be aware of the size if buying for a particular spot or use. Most come in full size-which would fit a full size bed as cover or twin size -fitting a twin bed. Some designs can be hung lengthwise or widthwise, however, sometimes the design only lends itself to one way of hanging. New mini tapestries have just come out. They are a great way to add a splash of color or design to windows, tables, couches and walls. These tapestries come in at about 30" X 45" making them very easy to place!  Look for these soon on our website,
