We select the highest quality cotton yarn, weave it on jacquard looms then we cut and sew each wall tapestry by hand.

The back of the tapestry is open so you can see how craftsmanship and weave structure creates the image on the face of the art.
Natural Fibers For Your Home Decor
We use natural fibers such as cotton for each and every wall tapestry. Wool and Cotton are the backbone of a genuine woven wall tapestry. Cotton is the most comforting natural fiber and it invites the touch of a hand ... when was the last time you touched a painting. A wall tapestry is an inviting addition to your home decor.

A Walk on the Wild Side: A Novel
With its depictions of the downtrodden prostitutes, bootleggers, and hustlers of Perdido Street in the old French Quarter of 1930s New Orleans, A Walk in the Wild Side has found a place in the imaginations of all generations since it first appeared. As Algren admitted, the book "wasn't written until long after it had been walked . . . I found my way to the streets on the other side of the Southern Pacific station, where the big jukes were singing something called 'Walking the Wild Side of Life.' I've stayed pretty much on that side of the curb ever since."
Perhaps the author's own words describe this classic work best: "The book asks why lost people sometimes develop into greater human beings than those who have never been lost in their whole lives. Why men who have suffered at the hands of other men are the natural believers in humanity, while those whose part has been simply to acquire, to take all and give nothing, are the most contemptuous of mankind."
