Can a tapestry be made into a size not shown on the site?
No. Each tapestry only comes in the size(s) shown. We cannot make them in other sizes.
Does a free rod come with the tapestry?
No. Rods and tassels are sold separately.
View rods & tassels here.
Do the rods include brackets and hardware?
Yes. Each rod comes with all necessary hardware, including brackets and screws. Nothing additional is required.
Are the images screen printed onto the fabric?
No. All images are woven into the tapestries. These are high quality tapestries.
Why do European woven tapestries cost more than the USA woven tapestries?
There are a few factors involved. 1) The cost of production is more. 2) They often utilize more costly materials, such as wool. 3) They are typically a little more thicker. 4) They are imported from Europe, which involves shipping and custom fees that we pay.
Are the tapestries woven by hand?
No. They are machine woven. However, each tapestry is hand finished and is therefore unique. Thus, sizes will occasionally vary by up to a few inches from the listed size.
How do I get wrinkles out of my tapestry?
To remove wrinkles or creases, iron the back of the tapestry first, using a steam iron on a medium setting.
If you still need to iron the front, place a thin cloth between the
fabric and the iron to avoid scorching the fibers. Using a steamer on the front side also works well and is safe.
How do I maintain my tapestry?
Once mounted on a wall, your tapestry should require very little maintenance. Vacuum your tapestry once
or twice a year with your vacuum cleaner's upholstery attachment to remove dust.
Do you appraise or buy old tapestries?
No. We deal exclusively with brand new tapestries and cannot appraise any others.
How much does shipping cost?
Shipping is free on all orders within the USA!
International shipping (outside the USA) is a flat rate of only $25 for your entire order.
How soon will my order ship?
Many orders ship within 3 business days. Sometimes an order has to be woven or come in from Europe, and in either case may take closer to 10-15 business days to ship. See more info here: Shipping Time Frames
Will I get a tracking number?
Yes. Once your order ships we will email you a tracking number.

Tapestries vs. Pictures
Why Buy a Tapestry Instead of a Framed Picture?
1. Durability - Our tapestries are made to last literally hundreds of years! Tapestries do not break. They are not fragile. Transporting & storing them is easy as they roll up.
2. Value - Most things depreciate with time, whereas tapestries hold their value exceptionally well and typically gain value the older they get.
3. Uniqueness - Tapestries are unique and make a loud impression. They have a multi-dimensional aspect, as the viewer can get a different feel from different angles.
4. Craftsmanship - Our tapestries are made in Belgium, France, Italy and the USA. An average tapestry utilizes 5-8 miles of thread. These are quality products!
5. Practicality - In an otherwise noisy room, tapestries serve as a noise reducer because they are fabric and help absorb sound.
