If you want to add some warmth and texture to any room in your home, you can consider hanging a tapestry on the wall. For centuries, this textile art has been used to improve the indoor environment. Now, the American Art Association makes it easier than ever to hang a wall in your home.

As the world's largest online art market, Fine art America collaborates with thousands of artists, photographers and graphic designers. This means that no matter what style you adopt, you can easily find the tapestry that suits your needs. Their lightweight microfiber tapestries will give you a museum-quality artwork that you can hang at any time.

In recent years, wall hangings have risen again. What was once regarded as simple dormitory decoration, or just those bohemian decorations, is now being valued for its artistic quality. More than ever, people like to use textiles to soften their interiors and bring some movement to their homes.

Modern wall hangings are the perfect choice, whether you put them on a bed, sofa, or along curved walls that are difficult to hang from traditional paintings. Because they are so light, you don't need to worry about having to place anchors on the wall. In fact, there is a lot of flexibility in how to tape the tapestry, even if you rent it and don't want to make a hole in the wall, the tapestry can be used. Velcro adhesives, nails and thumbtacks are all options for installing flowing fabrics. But if you want to make an elegant statement, you can hang it on a pole, use a poster hanger, or even frame it.

So where does the tradition of tapestry come from? We have to go back to the Middle Ages to find the answer.

The history of tapestry

Although the history of tapestries can be traced back to ancient Greece, they did not gain a foothold until the 14th century. This fabric is hand-woven on a loom and is popular throughout Europe. Although cotton, linen and wool are popular materials, it is not uncommon to find silver, gold and silk woven into more gorgeous tapestries. These great declarations are often hung on the throne, and kings and nobles can roll them up and take them to different residences.

Although Germany and Switzerland were the birthplaces of early workshops, this medium was only really popular in Flanders in the 16th century. There, studios full of skilled artists flourished, often collaborating with the best artists of the time to design and produce a large number of tapestries. A good example is the tapestry designed by Raphael, which is still hung in the Vatican Museum in Rome, Italy.

Later, in the 19th century, William Morris created fashionable wall hangings based on the design of former Raphaelite artist Edward Burne-Jones, reviving the art of tapestry making.

After the Second World War, there was a shift, artists began to work as weavers and began to produce their own designs. In Europe and the United States, tapestry exhibitions began to appear, adding value to their works. Art courses began to teach fiber art, and by the 1980s it became a popular part of art schools.

This continued enthusiasm for tapestries is a testament to the enduring heritage of these artworks.
