Decorative Tapestry Wall Hangings
Tapestry wall hangings has been a favorite wall decoration for many centuries, especially in the old countries of Europe. Tapestry wall hangings always hold their attraction as a decorative textile art. Tapestry wall hangings are a great way to add color and personality to your living space. These decorative wall hangings are typically woven of linen, wool, cotton or silk in myriad of weaves and themes. Because of the use of various colored thread and the way the threads can blend together in three dimensions, tapestry allows for an intricate interplay of color and light. The subtle shadings and differences in appearance from various angles often found in great tapestries are similar to, yet very different from, those found in the great classical paintings. In addition to their aesthetic worth, a tapestry also provided a church or castle with the added benefit of insulation. Thick layers of fabric lining the walls helped to keep heat trapped within, and also helped dampen the somewhat harsh acoustics of large stone chambers.
