Q. I Have Seen The Same Design on Several Websites. Is it Really The Same?
A. The design could well be the same but it could also be produced by several different weaving companies from various countries around the world. The differences come in the size of the tapestry and in the quality of the cotton and weave. All the tapestries that are sold through Woven Art & Beyond are woven in the United States on Jacquard looms using the finest cotton. The manufacturer is a family-owned business, which has been in the textile business for over 200 hundred years and takes great pride in the quality of its work (as do ALL manufacturers used by Woven Art & Beyond).
Q. I Need A Specific Size Tapestry To Fit My Space - How Accurate Are Your Stated Sizes For Each Tapestry?
A. Due to the nature of weaving the stated size of the tapestry can vary by up to +/- 5%. This is pretty much an industry wide standard no matter where the tapestry is woven. The reason for this variation is due to several factors including the tolerances of the loom that it was woven on and also the finishing and lining of the tapestry can affect its final size. The sizes indicated on this web site indicate the size that was aimed for by the weaver.
Q. Will The Colors Be Exactly As I See It On The Computer?
A. We try to reproduce the pictures as close to the original as possible but due to several factors, the colors may vary slightly from what you see on your computer monitor. The first factor in color variance can come from the individual tapestries as they are woven from many threads which are dyed, so the dye can be slightly different from batch to batch. Secondly, everyone's computer monitor is different in its age and how its settings are set. Due to all these possible variants, we cannot guarantee that these images represent the actual colors of the product. Returns due to color discrepancies will be considered a return of a non-defective item. Please email customer service if you have questions about an item.
Q. Can I return My Jacquard Woven Product?
A. Yes. We have a 15-day money back Guarantee. However, you will first need to contact us at email@example.com to obtain a Return Authorization Number Within (10) Days after receipt of your item. We will then instruct you as to where and how to return the merchandise. If you do not request a number, the package will not be accepted and will cost additional shipping fees. All returned merchandise must be returned in the original packaging and must include all packing materials and accessories. Your credit card will be refunded once we receive the tapestry back and it has been inspected. You will be responsible for all shipping charges inbound and outbound.

Q. What Are Your Average Ship Times For Your Jacquard Woven Tapestry Products?
A. Our Jacquard Woven items ( Wall Tapestry, Throw Blankets, Pillows, Totes - "Non"-Personalized) are shipped directly from our USA Textile Mills. If the item is stocked, it is "usually" shipped out within 5-10 "business days" via FedEx Ground or UPS. Please note this is NOT the time you will receive it, but rather when it usually ships from the manufacturer. However, it will usually ship sooner than indicated.
If not in stock, it can take up to 15-20 "business" days. Please keep in mind that these items are custom made (dying the cotton threads, Jacquard weaving, sewing the lining, washing, pressing, quality inspection, etc.), which is quite a process but one well worth it when you see the outcome - a lifetime of enjoyment. Seasonality affects delivery. ALWAYS give yourself extra lead time before big holidays!.
Q. What Are Your Jacquard Woven Products Made From?
A. All of our Jacquard woven wall tapestries, throw blankets, pillows, and totes are woven on a Jacquard loom from the finest natural cotton. Some of the tapestries also have a chenille or wool overlay adding an extra richness and texture to these already stunning tapestries (as indicated in item description). All our woven products are made in the USA and are 100% cotton (unless otherwise indicated).
See "What Is A Tapestry" and "Tapestry Care & Maintenance".
A. High quality tapestry reproduction is woven on Jacquard looms. The computer guided looms are perfect to reproduce detail and allow for the many colors required for the elegant motifs of today's popular wall hangings. The Jacquard Loom, a weaving machine invented in 1801 by Joseph-Marie Jacquard, used the first punched data cards, invented before there were any computers in the world. These data cards were the "program" that ran the loom. The cards were carried in linked chains, and they controlled the weaving pattern by influencing the position of the needles. Small sensing pins detected the presence or absence of holes in the cards, and determined whether or not a needle would pick up a thread. 200 years later, the inventions of Jacquard led the world to the modern day computer which, among an almost infinite and growing number of uses, guides the jacquard loom in reproducing tapestries of exquisite detail.
