No two pieces are alike. From the length of the strands and the way the fibers hang, to the saturation level for each layer of dye, replication is impossible. Each one-of-a-kind piece is handmade by Lauren Williams in Dallas, Texas.
Every month, new tapestries are added to the online shop. If you do not see one that you love today, check back and you may have a different experience with the next collection. However, a custom tapestry may be the best solution for your space, and Lauren would love to create that for you!
CANVAS WITH MOVEMENT tapestries range in size. Linear tapestries are built in large, medium and small sizes. Circular tapestries come in various dimensions per collection. Each monthly collection released online for public purchase include a variety of the above sizes, where "commissioned work" is often customized in size and shape per the client's request.
SIZES & SHAPES Should you need a custom size, tapestries can be built at different lengths and widths. Linear tapestries may also be cut to have different shapes; V cut, inverted V cut, straight edge, jagged, unstructured, or even "A line" to compliment the angle of an architectural design.
DYE COLORS The ability to achieve exact colors or lines when working with dye on a Canvas With Movement tapestry is difficult. Unlike canvas art and working with paints, fiber art has certain challenges. The fibers absorb the dyes differently depending on the temperature, humidity, composition of the strands and dye recipe. Striving to get a precise shade or hue can be very challenging and often impossible. When ordering a custom tapestry, having an idea of the style and shades to incorporate is best. Expecting precision is not the way to go when ordering a custom, dip-dyed wall hanging.
STYLE The unique styles of dye lines come from Lauren's artistic judgement once she understand's your style preference. Dye lines can be abstract, imitate a landscape, have an ombré effect of blended shades of color, or simply a single dip of color. Being exact with the lines of dye is very difficult on a Canvas With Movement tapestry, so precision is never the focus.
METALLICS Metallic detail can be added to your tapestry. Depending on the tapestry design and style of the dye lines, a metallic texture may be the perfect addition.

how long does it take to make a tapestry?
Every piece takes a great deal of time. The process begins in the wood shop by choosing the most beautiful walnut planks. Each piece is cut, sanded, and treated before cutting and attaching the 100% wool, Canvas With Movement fiber strands, one by one. Once the canvas is built, the dyeing begins. Lauren usually works on multiple pieces at once, shifting between them as she changes dye colors or waits for the latest layer of dye to dry. Lauren uses drying breaks to decide on color layers and make design decisions. Once the last layer of dye is complete, the tapestry is left to dry overnight. Should metallic detail be part of the design, this step requires a day of work. Lauren claims to remain "purposefully ignorant" of the time it takes to make each one, but it's safe to say that more than 15 hours and sometimes up to 3 months can go into a single tapestry.
how TO hang the tapestry?
We provide hanging instructions with each piece that is shipped. We also include hardware for your piece to hang perfectly. Directions for hanging your tapestry, as well as hardware are included in your package. The hanging will rest on top of the hardware provided.
How do I clean the tapestry?
Remove the tapestry from the wall and while outdoors, sway from side to side to release any dust particles. Any dust that has gathered on the dowel may be brushed away with a dry hand. Do not use a damp cloth or cleaning products, as dye may bleed.
what materials do you use?
The walnut wood is sourced locally. The fiber strands are Lauren's signature line of 100% pure wool created by partnering with a small, eco-friendly ranch operation in Wyoming. The small ranch and local mill work together with Lauren and as a group are committed to sound animal husbandry and sustainable agricultural practices. Various dyes, dilluted paints, and other staining liquids are used in the process of creating a CANVAS WITH MOVEMENT® tapestry. Should allergies related to natural fibers be a concern, please email HELLO @ LaurenWilliamsART.com to discuss other options.
will the tapestry stain my wall?
Hundreds of dip dyed tapestries have hung on the studio's white walls without leaving any marks. However, if you were to rub the strands into your wall, you would probably see a mark on the wall or your fingers. Similar to a new, unwashed garment that has been hand dyed, a transfer of color can happen. You should carefully run your fingers downward to separate the strands after hanging, but once situated, the tapestry should not be fondled. Handle strands gently to avoid minor tinting of fingers.
Can i use a different carrier for shipment?
Fed Ex is the chosen shipping carrier based on price and care. The kraft mailing tubes that we use to ship Large, Medium, and most Custom Tapestry sizes are 74" long. Fed Ex offers the best shipping rates for a package this size. FedEx is used for the velvet pillows and throws. USPS is used for prints.

FedEx will send text message notifications for expected delivery time and date as well as delivery confirmation.
