Hello, my name is Michael Blasingame. My wife's name is Ashley. (That's us on the right.) Together, we own and operate Quality Tapestries. We are a family owned business. It all began over 30 years ago when my family began selling furniture in the small town of Porterville, California, USA. Sometime later my brother Daniel realized that selling on the internet was the wave of the future. So in 2005 we began selling online! We started out small by putting some products on eBay. Things branched out from there, and in 2009 I began to proudly sell our high quality wall tapestries from this ever-evolving online store, QualityTapestries.com. I head up running and maintaining this website, as well as handling much of the customer service. We treat our customers like human beings, because that is how we would like to be treated by a service oriented company. Because of this we have an
A+ with the Better Business Bureau. Your happiness and satisfaction are very important to us. If you have any questions at all, or simply want to send us some feedback, please don't hesitate to contact us.
I would like to personally thank you for visiting our store and we hope to earn your business!

About Our Tapestries
About two thirds of the wall tapestries that we sell are woven in North Carolina, USA! These products are jacquard woven utilizing the latest computer based looms. (Click here to see how these tapestries are woven.) The rest of our tapestries are imported, primarily from Belgium, France & Italy! These European woven tapestries are also of the highest quality and design. We proudly stand behind each product that we sell, which is why we offer an excellent return policy that gives you peace of mind to buy.
I grew up in and around the town of Visalia, California. I started working for my family's furniture business at the age of 17. After a couple years of being a furniture salesman I moved out to New York City. My time in the city expanded my love for art and culture. Thereafter I moved back to California. However, I did not return to the valley. Instead I moved to the beautiful central coast. There I resumed working with my family's furniture business in our retail stores located in San Luis Obispo County. After some years of living on the coast the inevitable happened. A friend got me into surfing! What an epic time I enjoyed during my years with this hobby.
It was also during those years that my attention was turned to wall tapestries. In actuality, my family had been selling tapestries in our stores for years! However, it was only in 2009 that I realized that there was a market for selling these products exclusively online. And so that is just where my business efforts have been focused ever since. In 2013 I married my best friend Ashley! Together we now manage Quality Tapestries.
I was born in Guyana, a small country in South America sandwiched between Venezuela and Suriname. My Father is East-Indian and my mother is Afro-Caribbean. When I was two we moved to the island of Trinidad in the Caribbean and then later to the nearby island of Grenada. In Grenada I spent my days on the beach drinking coconut water and playing with my cousins. When I was 10 my family and I packed up and moved to California where I’ve resided for the majority of my life. In high school I was very involved in Drama class and performed in many plays and musicals. To this day singing is still one of my favorite hobbies. I’ve known Michael for many years but in 2012 sparks flew and a year later we were married!

Here is a recent response from a customer:
Thanks again for your willingness to ensure I had the right color tapestry. I couldn't be happier. It's a great looking piece and brings a great element of color to my family room. I will absolutely keep you in mind when referring others and when I need to add another beautiful piece to my decor.
