Wonderful Uses for Indian Tapestries

How to Use Indian Tapestries in Your Home

Welcome to this series of blog posts that will be featuring various items in Bonnie’s store, A Peaceful Path, and explaining different aspects of holistic healing.  My name is Rebecca Yoder, writer, creative thinker and guest blogger for A Peaceful Path.  I met Bonnie last year when she hosted an Art Goddess Faire for us local artisans.  Since then I have written several articles for a local newspaper about events taking place in her shop including her recent move to 820 College Street, a beautiful, intimate version of her former location.  Holistic healing, meditation and reiki are all new to me, so I started asking a lot of questions.  I’m always curious to learn more.  So I decided to use my curiosity to help others understand what I myself am just now learning.

This first blog post features a new item Bonnie has in her store: Indian tapestries.  These tapestries originally come from the shrines and temples of India.  There are many different patterns on these tapestries including some made of elephants, lotus flowers and a sacred symbol called the om symbol.  They are very colorful and are made of 100% cotton, making them easy to clean.  They are also quite versatile, making them very budget friendly as well, since they can be used in so many different ways.

Here are some creative ideas on how to use an Indian tapestry to decorate your home.

As a Window Dressing
Alice Tann, who works with Bonnie, arranged several Indian tapestries as a type of valance above the beautiful picture window in the shop’s retail area as well as in Bonnie’s office and the reiki room.

As a Wall Hanging
For a fun use, try folding it over a rod and hanging it on the wall like you would a picture, or just tack it up directly.  It will give the room an entirely different feel.  This technique could be used on the two walls of a corner to create a special space within a room for reading, meditation or just as a focal point.  Add a pretty chair, a small table and a plant and you have a mini room without having to do any remodeling to your home.  You can also use a smaller Indian tapestry as a meditation rug in your new space.

Various Covers
Chair covers, decorative bed covers, table cover or tablecloth (they are washer and dryer safe).  Use your imagination.

Couch Throw
These tapestries work as a fun summertime couch throw.  They look great as an accent to the couch, and when the AC kicks on, you can use it as a light blanket.  (They also work great as a beautiful shawl when the cooler months come.)

Curtain
These tapestries make beautiful curtains.  You can buy a set of curtain rings in the sewing and craft department of any store and attach them to the top of the tapestry.  Slide the rings onto your curtain rod when you are done and you have a beautiful sliding curtain that looks great over windows, big or small, over French doors or even on a tension rod fastened in a doorway.

Ceiling Tapestry
In addition to window dressings, Bonnie has used the tapestries in her shop as table covers, massage bed covers, and perhaps the most beautiful of all, as ceiling tapestries.  In her reiki and meditation rooms, the deep purple tapestries billow down from the ceiling, drawing your eye upward.  When I look up I experience the same feeling I get when someone is about to lay a blanket over me to tuck out the cold.  The tapestries have small loops already sewn into the corners to make hanging easier and save on wear and tear.

These are just a few ways to use the tapestries.  Check out this Pinterest link for pictures and more creative ideas:  http://www.pinterest.com/explore/tapestry-wall/

You can find these beautiful tapestries for sale in Bonnie’s shop in Clinton, NC.  She has two sizes in stock, 60” x 90” and 85” x 100”.  They range in price from $20 to $35.  Larger and smaller sizes are available by request.  Also look for her glow-in-the-dark and 3D varieties.

These tapestries will be a great investment because of their multitude of uses.  After using them as wall hangings for several months, change up the look in your home by using them as curtains, then a couch accent and so on.  A one-time cost for a multi-use decoration.

Indian tapestries bring a feel of relaxation and comfort to a room and to the people who enter it.  Deep purples give off a healing touch.  Patterns made from elephants represent good fortune.  Newer tapestries display bright colors bringing a feel of adventure or excitement to a room.  And since they are from India, they will bring an exotic, well-traveled feel to your home without costing you a plane ticket overseas.  They make a great conversation piece when hosting a party.  Be creative and use the tapestries to reflect your personality and style.

We’ll see you back here next week for another post on the items and services of A Peaceful Path.

I agree that a tapestry can look great just by simply hanging it on the wall. My wife has done that in a few rooms in our apartment. I think they give a room a very cool vibe. They add a lot of color to a room.
