Tapestries are a lovely form of wall décor. This fine fiber art has the weight of centuries of craftwork behind it. Tapestries can be representational, but they can also be an abstract sample of a fiber art such as macramé or weaving. They can be smooth, made from delicate threads or they can be bold compositions from heavier kinds of fiber. A tapestry can even be an example of pieced fabric scrap work. A tapestry can be purely decorative or it can be used as insulation or to cover an imperfection.
