European wall tapestries Tapestry Art Designs


These practical points will help you care for your tapestry wall hanging.

  1. There may be transit creases on your tapestry when you receive it. These can be removed easily by careful pressing with a steam iron on the rear side.
  2. Tapestries are woven individually on a loom and part of their individuality is that there may be irregularities in the weave or there may be hanging undulations. Do not expect them to be precisely square and flat like a framed print: this is not their character.
  3. There are two ways to hang tapestries with rod pockets (our standard finishing always has a rod pocket on the lining):
    • cut a length of round wooden dowel slightly longer than the rod pocket. Insert small closed cup-hooks into each end and simply place them over small picture hook nails. This is quick, easy and inexpensive.
    • purchase a metal or wooden rod with finials (decorative ends) from a local drapery or interiors store. Use the provided brackets to hang the tapestry ‘off’ the wall, or hang the rod over two nails hammered down at a 45 degree angle for flush mounting. Add a pair of cords with tassels to either side if you wish to match the tapestry to the existing décor.
  4. An annual brushing with a soft brush is sufficient to dust your tapestry – or use the drapes vacuum attachment. It may be dry cleaned with care if a stain somehow occurs but we suggest this be a last resort.
