An art of textile framing
Textiles are a form of art that have been created and used by humans for thousands of years. Whether fabrics are stitched to create garments, cloths, wall decorations, tapestries, or carpets, textiles have maintained a crucial importance to family history and cultural identity to people over all periods of time. With this being the case, framing of textiles continues to be a reoccurring process.
Similar to the procedures for other artistic media, the process by which frames are chosen for textiles is relatively the same. The frame style must match the style of the artist, the style of the time period, mood, colors, textures and subjects.
