Tapestries are a timeless art...
Tapestries have been used as both an art from and a medium for recording historical events. The famous Beaux Tapestry is a historical account of the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The tapestry was hand woven and took years to complete. Thousands of tapestries have been commissioned as pure works of art, adorning fine homes through the ages. Tapestries today are created with a mix of past and present art.
Caring for and hanging your work of art.
Tapestries are meant to be hung from the walls, the manner in which they are hung is a mixture of personal preference and science.
Because your tapestry is mounted on a wall, it should not be subject to the same abuse as your carpet and upholstered seating; therefore it should need less frequent maintenance. (Although some have elected to place a tapestry on the floor as some of the designs lend them to this. Others use them as bedcovering or table covers, which is a traditional use.) Vacuuming the front and back of your tapestry once or twice per year, with your vacuum upholstery attachment, should be sufficient maintenance for many years to come. Consider cleaning your tapestries about as often you do your fine window treatments.
