1. Best of Cool Tapestries: World Map
Wanderlust is such a common term that people seem to forget why it’s so important. The desire to travel and experience the world has been a condition of human kind since the dawn of civilization.
Identifying with this feeling makes it hard to want to stay in one place. But, life can get in the way of world travel….at least for right now. So, a tapestry displaying the world map will keep your desire for excursions at bay.
This baby will keep your dreams of travel alive and well. It’s constructed at 60″ x 60″, which is considered a “Twin Size”. It’s also made of cotton, so it can be washed easily–just don’t dry it on high heat, or it may shrink. If you prefer to be super careful, you can always dry clean this baby, too.
The tag is pinned on, so you don’t have to worry about ripping the fabric to remove it. Fuel your inner desire to travel with this world map tapestry.

2. Best of Cool Tapestries: Tie Dye
When it comes to tapestries, there are a few things people think of: sweet wall decoration and tie dye. Of course, not all cool tapestries are tie dye, but it’s a super popular design.
Not all tie dye is created equally. Some tie dye tapestries look like they were dipped with cranberry juice in a musty, old garage. Others are just kind of…lame looking. The Luna Bazaar tie dye tapestry, though, defies all of those stereotypes.
This baby features rich colors even Roy G. Biv would be jealous of. There are only seven colors in a rainbow…but a ton more exist in this wall hanging. The material is 100% cotton, which is super lightweight and soft.

3. Best of Cool Tapestries: Mandala
Mandalas are a huge part of designing cool tapestries. A mandala is a Hindu and Buddhist symbol, which represents the universe.
Of course, in the context of tapestries, there’s less of a spiritual meaning behind them (although they always have their basis in it!), and are more meant as a beautiful decoration with calming roots. There are so many mandala tapestries out there, but Madhu International’s tapestry is absolute perfection.
A rich purple color adorns this awesome tapestry. The material is 100% cotton, so it can easily be washed and dried at home–but it’s recommended you hang it out to dry. It measures 84″ x 54″, so it’s definitely larger than other cool tapestries.
Don’t worry about receiving junk, it comes with a certificate proving its authenticity. Vibrant colors will make this mandala tapestry your decoration centerpiece.

4. Best of Cool Tapestries: Elephant
Elephants are such amazing, beautiful creatures. They’re insanely intelligent, and very gentle, given their massive size. It goes without saying that an elephant tapestry is the perfect addition to any dorm room, bedroom, or beach towel collection.
Because tapestries aren’t just for hanging on the wall, they can easily double as a picnic blanket or table cloth. If you’re looking for the coolest of cool tapestries, though, you definitely need to check out the Jiamingyang Elephant Flower Tapestry.
It features a breathtaking, vibrant image of an elephant. The elephant is wearing a beautiful headpiece, adding to the aura of exquisiteness. It measures 80″ x 60″, but you have the option to purchase a smaller version at 59″ x 51″.

5. Best of Cool Tapestries: Black and White
Without light there is just darkness. Without black, there is only white. The yin is balanced with the yang. Black and white symbolism has existed since the dawn of time. And a black and white tapestry really dives into that uniqueness headfirst.
Most cool tapestries are super colorful and vibrant. So, a black and white tapestry really stands out amongst the crowd.
If you’re a fan of choices, this beautiful tapestry is available in three sizes: extra-small, small, and large. Extra small measures 54″ x 54″, small measures 54″ x 82″, and large measures 82″ x 92″.

6. Best of Cool Tapestries: Hippie
Hippie tapestries are a dime a dozen. It seems like every single tapestry has “hippie” somewhere in the description. While they may fit the vibe, most of them don’t feel “right”.
Since “hippie” is such a broad term, it can be difficult to find exactly what you’re looking for. In this instance, hippie refers to an earthy, calm tapestry–people may refer to it as “crunchy”. The Dremisland Hippie Tapestry fits the term to a T.
It features an off-center, beautiful, blue and brown mandala, with white mandalas curving around it. The tapestry is made of a polyester fiber/cotton mix, and the design is screen printed on. Because of this, it’s ideal to hand-wash this baby.

7. Best of Cool Tapestries: Blue
Blue is such a beautiful color. It’s reminiscent of the sky on a cloudless day, and the ocean on a day where the water is like glass. A calming feeling easily enters your body when you’re surrounded by the color.
So, why not purchase a blue tapestry to emit that same feeling of calmness? Every time you enter the room, you’ll smile to yourself because of the beautiful Hippie Bohemian Blue Tapestry.
This lovely wall hanging features a blue mandala. But, it’s not just any ol’ blue–it’s a rainbow of blue colors, ranging from bluebird to a dark navy blue. It’s made of 100% cotton, but it’s best to hand-wash this baby, then let it air dry.

8. Best of Cool Tapestries: Trippy
If you’re being honest with yourself, of all of the cool tapestries available, you really want a trippy tapestry. Trippy tapestries are generally what you’d expect out of that type of wall decor…because it has a 420 aura.
While you’re not outright saying you’re a part of the lifestyle, you can definitely benefit from the type of decor. And there’s no better trippy tapestry than one designed specifically by an artist.
Artist, Chris Dyer, created this crazy piece of art and had it made into one of the coolest tapestries I’ve ever encountered. Choose between two different sizes: 30″ x 45″ and 60″ x 90″.
Use it as wall decor, beach blanket, or bed cover. If you happen to have 3D glasses on-hand, look at this bad boy. You’ll be in for quite the visual ride. This 100% cotton trippy tapestry is exactly what you need to round out your room.

9. Best of Cool Tapestries: Purple/h2>
Most cool tapestries are rectangular or square. (Although that’s rather redundant, given that by definition, a square is a rectangle!) In order to stand out amongst the crowd, a circle tapestry is in order.
And what better color than a purple tapestry? A circle purple tapestry. Try saying that 10 times fast. All jokes aside, the Round Lotus Flower Purple Mandala Tapestry is easily the best purple tapestry around.
A lotus mandala adorns this beauty, featuring an array of purples, ranging from lavender to deep purple. It’s made from 100% cotton. The diameter is approximately 72″, which is to say it’s about 72″ wide.

10. Best of Cool Tapestries: Boho
Boho tapestries, just like hippie tapestries, feel like they’re on every street corner. The difference between boho and hippie, is that boho is more light and ethereal, while hippie is crunchy and colorful.
Boho tapestries tend to be flowy and light, focusing on less-pigmented hues. The Zest For Life Citrus Fruit Mandala Tapestry taps directly into that feeling.
This boho tapestry takes a unique twist on mandalas, and throws in a delicious fruit: the orange. But, the orange is very light. Think less orange juice, more early sunrise. It measures 80″ x 52″, so make sure you have a space large enough to accommodate it.
Plus, it’s designed with loops at the corners for easy hanging, anchoring to the sand at the beach, or tying. This zesty boho tapestry is an easy choice.
