Tips for Hanging a Persian Rug
This article goes over how to hang a Persian rug on your wall.
Assess whether your Persian rug is suitable for hanging. Such rugs often have sleeves on the back or hooks to make the hanging easier. If your rug is too heavy for you to lift, or weighs more than 100 pounds, you shouldn't hang the rug as this can cause tearing over time and damage the rug.
Attach a sleeve to the back of the rug, if it doesn't have one, using about 8 to 10 inches of sturdy fabric. Sew the top and bottom of the fabric to the top of the rug, making small and delicate stitches, blending in with the rug. You can use binding tape in lieu of fabric.
Purchase a long wooden stick (about 6" longer than the rug) thick enough to hold the rug's weight. Picture hangers are often made to support very heavy items and they are usually clearly marked with how much weight they will hold. A good sturdy dowel about 6" thick or more is a good rule of thumb. If you are unsure, purchase a the thickest stick that will fit through the sleeve on the back of the rug. These wooden sticks can be purchased at craft stores. Cut one piece of wire or very strong string (about 12") and tie either side to one end of the wooden stick.
Sew three 7" wide and 8" to 10" sleeves (one at either side and one in the middle) for heavier Persian rugs, usually over 50lbs. Place these horizontally, sewing the fabric on the right and left side.
Measure the Persian rug with a yardstick or measuring tape. Measure out where you want the rug on the wall, taking care that you leave enough room for fringes so that they do not hang on the floor.
Make a mark where you would like to place the picture hangers. Put the picture hangers in the wall and then put the string over the picture hook. Adjust until the weight is distributed evenly. For heavier rugs, place the picture hangers on each piece of fabric to ensure that the rug's weight will be distributed evenly, nailing them directly through the fabric of the sleeve (do not place the picture hanger through the rug itself, although you may hammer on top of the rug to secure the picture hangers, as long as you are very careful not to damage the rug by poundng too hard with the hammer).
