Textile Wall Hangings

Wall hangings have been around for centuries.   They were popular because they could easily be hung, taken down, rolled up and moved to a different location.  Textile wall hangings were draped on walls for insulation during winter and for decorative display.  Wall hangings could contain important information, announcements or a family's history.

Below are "a few photos" of modern day textile art wall hangings:
