FAQs

Best way to hang tapestries:

Tapestries aren’t a hassle to put up, don’t worry. We’ve sorted a list of methods for you:

• Hammer and nails - If you’re worried about damaging your walls, we do not recommend hoisting up your new decoration by hammering hooks in. But, if you’re comfortable getting your toolbox out, go for it. Putting a nail or hook is probably the most effective method for getting the tapestry to stay.

• Adhesives - Using an adhesive is a great option for those of you against putting a hole in your wall. Luckily, there are a variety to suit different size tapestries: including velcrocommand strips, or adhesive clips. Choose one best suited for your tapestry, then stick them to your wall and attach the tapestry. Make sure to get something heavy-duty for rug-like tapestries.

• Hang from a Rod – Hanging your tapestry from a rod is a traditional method. In fact, many tapestries have a rod 'pocket', which is a tube of fabric designed to keep a curtain rod inside. If your tapestry has this pocket, or wide holes that could suit a curtain rod, you’re ready to go. If you want to use a curtain rail but don’t have a rod “pocket”, sew your own using some old fabric.
