Applique Folk Art

Applique Folk Art is a fun way to spice up your decor and get conversations going. Most of these wall hangings tell a story about an occasion, event or time. They are put together through an intricate process called applique. Each piece of the wall hanging is sewn on individually to create the finished product. Folk art tends to be whimsical in nature and bright in color, adding fun and flair to any room.


Add a touch of history or nostalgia to your room by using a large map as a wall hanging. Make it stand out by matting and framing it or leave it open so you can mark places as you visit them. Or bring a piece of history to life with a hanging leather map. These maps are available for different continents as well as different time periods and are a perfect addition to your library, den or study.
