Patchwork carpets inspiration - CarpetVista

Patchwork carpets inspiration - CarpetVista | Inspiration and decorating with Handmade carpets | Scoop.it

Maybe you have an old hand quilted blanket made with special care by your grandmother? Quilts have long contributed to giving us a sense of security and belonging while linking us to past generations.

Patchwork carpets are made with the same kind of attention, sewn together patch by patch from older Turkish carpets of at least 20 years of age. The patches are carefully selected after pattern and colour and when pieced together create a new and original carpet rich in history.

Carpet, carpet on the wall... | Inspiration and decorating with Handmade carpets | Scoop.it
Most of the time when you think of a handmade carpet it is destined for one space and that is on the floor. This, of course, is the most logical place for it to end up, but that does not mean that it is the only place it can show off its beauty and craftsmanship. A handmade carpet is a unique and often valuable piece of art that deserves to be put on display. Hanging a carpet on a wall, rather than putting it on the floor, can add a great deal of depth and life to an otherwise open space. Placed in a sizable room it can also serve to reduce the effects of echoes and noise.Here you can find some helpful tips on how to stylishly and safely place your handmade carpet on your wall. One method is to build or use a pre-existing frame around the carpet and attach it using fabric nails or staples. You can then hang it up like you would a painting. 
CarpetVista's insight:

Carpets can also be hanged on walls.
