How to Hang Your Large Textile Prints
Posted on April 29 2021
"When I started to sell large textile prints, they were large enough that I felt I also needed to offer ways to hang the large works of art.
As with frames, hanging a tapestry or large textile piece can add to the work and be an important part on the decor and atmosphere of any space.
So here are a few options that I have used in the past.
But ultimately, this can be your contribution to the piece.
Be creative. Be mindful of the work and have fun installing your works of art."

How to hang your tapestry:
There are many ways to hang these prints.
With no wrong way, feel free to get creative.
Here are some ideas to get you started.
These will be available on this site soon. But in the mean time you can order off of the Well Made website. Sean's recommendation is:
- Top and bottom pieces (top alone is fine too)
- Black Oxide Hardware
They also have magnetic bars but I have NOT tried them with the textile prints offered on this website.
Rope Hangers, clamps and bars made and sold from small businesses that you can't go wrong. You can seriously shop there all day.
The great thing with this option is there are so many colors, materials and ways to hang your artwork that you can really match the aesthetic of your space.
This can be very cost effective and give an industrial look. You may need a few of these to go across the top. With these you can us pushpins or nails to hang the bulldog clips from not to puncture the fabric/ artwork.
Hang it from a curtain rod with clips
This will of course puncture the fabric / artwork. But that is left up to you and your creativity. This can be tacked to a stretcher, solid board or directly to the wall. Upholstery nails tend to be thicker, which means bigger holes, but can come in many different styles. These stainless steel tacks are a staple in our STUDiO.
You can get it framed.
That's right. Just because it's fabric doesn't mean you can't put it in a frame. Due to it's size, it is recommended you find a local framer to make something custom for you. But be careful it could cost 4x as much as the print.
