Wall Hanging

There are several satisfactory ways to hang antique weavings, rugs, kilims and tapestries, and numerous ways to mount fragile or fragmentary textile art. In my house, favourite pieces are sometimes temporarily hung with push pins or brads; then this temporary state becomes permanent, to the dismay of conservator friends who use an array of much more gentle methods. The textiles themselves often dictate the best solution. I have described a few common methods below. No textile should be hung with rings, as the fabric's weight is unevenly distributed. Think of how old shower curtains sag, crease and tear. The spring clips used in some carpet shops are suitable only for temporary use. Carpet tack strips should never be used, even temporarily, because the very sharp edges along the sides of each tack cut the fibers; they also eventually rust. Heavy frames or poles with decorative finials are rarely appropriate, and a simple presentation is the most elegant.
