Tapestry is woven decorative fabric, the design of which is built up in the course of weaving. Broadly, the name has been used for almost any heavy material, handwoven, machine woven, or even embroidered, used to cover furniture, walls, or floors or for the decoration of clothing. Since the 18th and 19th centuries, however, the technical definition of the tapestry has been narrowed to include only heavy, reversible, patterned, or figured handwoven textiles, usually in the form of hangings or upholstery fabric.
They’re an excellent addition to any space, but they’re best hung where they can make the biggest impact. We love to display them above a couch, bed, mantle, OR on a smaller wall where it can create an almost-wallpaper effect.
Just because they’re called “wall tapestries” doesn’t mean they’re not multifunctional. We’ve seen some seriously amazing tapestry tricks including:

- What purpose do you think the bayeux tapestry served?
The purpose of the Bayeux Tapestry has been a source of debate for centuries. Some believe it was used as a memorial to commemorate the victory at the Battle of Hastings, while others argue that it served as propaganda tool for the Norman Dynasty. Whatever its original purpose, the tapestry is now one of the most iconic artifacts in history and is regularly exhibited in museums around the world.
- How to hang tapestry from the ceiling?
Preparation is key when it comes to hanging tapestries from the ceiling. Make sure all of the hardware and ropes are in place before starting to hang the piece. You will also want to make sure that the surface you are hanging the tapestry on is level and straight.
To hang a tapestry on a wall, start by finding studs in your wall and marking where they are with a pencil or painter’s tape. Use screws and anchors to attach the bottom of the tapestry frame to these marks. Be sure to use enough screws so that it does not move during heavy use, but not so many that they pierce through the paint or wallpaper.
- How to clean tapestry?
No matter how often you may think that your tapestry is clean, it’s always a good idea to give it a thorough cleaning. Here are some easy steps for cleaning tapestries:
Clean the surface of the tapestry with a damp cloth. If there is dirt or dust embedded in the fabric, use a brush to get into all the nooks and crannies. Use a mild soap if necessary. Dry the tapestry thoroughly before storing it.
If your tapestry gets dirty from everyday use, such as spills or pets, follow these steps: Wet the area with water and pour in enough white vinegar to cover the fabric. Soak for 30 minutes then rinse off with cold water. Towel dry and store away from direct sunlight or heat sources.
