Modern Tapestries: Contemporary Art, Ancestral Techniques

When you are looking at modern tapestries for sale, finding the right combination of true art and careful creation can be difficult. With Maximo Laura, you can discover Andean mythology and ritual alongside modern art, deftly woven into a tapestry that is as complex as its creator.

Maximo Laura was born and grew up in the Andes, in Ayacucho, Peru. The fifth generation of a family of weavers, Mr. Laura learned the ancestral weaving methods and techniques alongside cultural stories, myths and legends that were part of his heritage. With a passion for learning and a thirst for knowledge, he began a lifelong commitment to studying art history and literature that took him beyond the borders of Peru and began informing his weaving techniques.

Through his development and integration of ancestral Peruvian weaving and memories with contemporary art, Mr. Laura came to be an award-winning tapestry weaver and one of South America’s pre-eminent and most unique artists. A valued consultant, designer and lecturer on art, his contemporary Andean textile design is on display in museums around the world.

Now, Mr. Laura lives and works in the Museo Maximo Laura in Lima and has had over 140 exhibitions of his modern tapestries in more than 29 countries.

How To Display Your Modern Tapestry

The way that Maximo prefers is to hang the piece with 2 metal rods, one for the top sleeve of the tapestry and another for the bottom in a way that they are hidden from view. This hanging method is achieved by hanging the tapestry with two metal rods that are a bit shorter in length than the length of the tapestry, that way, once they are inserted into the sleeves of the wall tapestry, they won’t be visible from the outside. We recommend using metal rods because they weigh more than wooden rods. The more weight there is at the bottom of the tapestry, the more tension will be made once the tapestry is hanging and the piece will look better. However, it is also possible to use wooden rods.

The yarn used to weave the modern tapestries is the same that is used to create clothing, so it comes with protection against light damage. The only limitation is to not place the modern tapestries in direct sunlight without any kind of barrier, such as on a terrace. However, if the tapestry is going to be hanging inside, there is no problem. Even if the room has a lot of windows which let sunlight in, as long as there are barriers such as the glass in the windows, your tapestry will be fine.

If the modern tapestry is folded over long periods of time, fold lines can appear. If this is the case, you can steam the tapestry or stretch it with your hands and apply some force to the top surface of the tapestry, as you would do to a shirt.
