I like these Mexican Zapotec Indian rugs better on the walls than I did on the floor. Their design and colors show off so much better.
Renee (a junk queen) told me how to display them because I didn't have a clue. I probably would have used 16-penny nails. In fact, Renee was with me when I bought the rugs at a house sale so she must have felt responsible for proper installation!
First, buy a piece of 1 x 4 lumber and cut it to the length of the rug. I added six inches to the wood (three for each side) so I had plenty of room to find the stud on the wall but if you plan better than I do, you won't have to do that.
Then cut a strip of sturdy fabric long enough to cover the length of the rug and the width of the piece of wood (four-inches). Hand sew with double thread the strip of material to the edge of the rug.
