I bought this for my son for Xmas. I bought a decorative bronze curtain rod to hang it up with, and it looks great hanging over his couch in the living room. He really loves it!

Love this tapestry. Works perfectly in my dining room with the other artwork. I hung it on a dark brown cafe curtain rod. It is as described, colors are vibrant and I am very happy with my purchase. Price was very good too compared to similar type products you might find at World Market, Pier One, etc. Pleased!

I loved the photo of this tapestry on your website - especially the colors and the roses. Unfortunately mine had no roses and salmon colored cotton type eyelet lace was substituted instead. Somehow this didn't feel very Guatemala to me and instead of using it in my main room it now hangs in the stairway. The colors are wonderful though.

I purchased this tapestry along with the similarly priced Embroidered Rust-Red Tapestry (Guatemala) also on Overstock.com and was very pleasantly surprised with the Guatemalan tapestry. It exceeded my expectations. On the other hand, this tapestry was more or less a piece of cloth with some ink stamped onto it. There is no pattern made of thread, it is just a screen print. It is on its way back. Sorry.

The only thing that may look better is if the fringe is more substantial. It's just white cotton thread ends tied off, making it look flimsy and does not add to the tapestry as a whole.

Although I recieved a nice tapestry, it is NOT the one featured on this site. The center of my tapestry depicts an oblong wreath of small flowers with large leaves. It is not as artistically appealing and it doesn't look as balanced as the center of the featured tapestry. I am a little disapointed but it is a nicely crafted piece.

This tapestry is way better than I expected. The colors are stunning. Workmanship - wow. Looks very expensive. Love it.

This is an absolutely beautiful tapestry. 100% authentic! I was worried that it would not compare to the beautiful tapestries that I purchased in Guatemala. This exceeds my expectation. If you are worried about the 'smell' that another person mentioned in an earlier post....then don't buy dyed products. It wasn't that bad - I hung it outside after spraying a little Febreeze on it...and its fine! Gorgeous! Hoping to see more in more varieties of color!

I think the colors and workmanship are excellent. I was hoping for the rose pattern shown on the sample, but the one I received is O.K. The only thing I really didn't like is the lace that was added - it's machine made and polyester and isn't something I would have accepted as handcrafted. It takes away from the rustic, old-world look which is why I wouldn't recommend it to others.

when i unwrapped this peruvian wall art i was stunned. the colors are even more vibrant and powerful than in the picture. the tapestry is beautiful and happy with the birds on the tree branches or flying. i looked at many wall decorations, such as posters, but none could match the beauty of this artistic depiction of nature . i am grateful i didn't pass this wall tapestry up. it adds color and beauty to my home. thank you o.com for carrying these items.

This tapestry is pretty, but the fringe at the bottom is stitched into the hem and leaves about an inch gap in in the front of the piece. I didn't notice it for a while. I should have sent it back, but just didn't. It really isn't of much use as it is.

I really purchased this on a whim because I thought it looked nice and it was so inexpensive. I was fully expecting to be let down. But it turned out just the opposite. This easily looks like it could cost three time what is being charged here and people would be satisfied. It has rich colors, a nice thick lustrous fabric and is well made. Definitely a bargain!

I was very happy when the tapestry arrived. The colors are rich and the workmanship is better than appeared on line.

We are very happy about our purchase. It arrived in a timely manner and is even more beautiful than I had expected it would be. Well made -- unique design and it has become the focal point of the roomin which it hangs. Absolutely love it. Have thought of ordering another similar to it. I would like to seeOverstock show more items from Central America. Guatemala especially appeals to me.Thank you, Overstock!

This is a great compliment to my Kokopelli tapestries. I love the rich brown hue and inspiring poem.

If you want to block out light, a valance and full-length blackout panel curtain is your best choice.

Tension rods are positioned between two facing surfaces, such as the interior frame of a window or the opposing sides of a shower cubicle.
