Wall tapestries are a great way to decorate any room and help express who you really are, like this tapestry from Redbubble expresses who I am 100% when I’m at my “regular job”. (Sad but true. lol. But that’s why I write this blog, to hopefully stop working there one day.)
Tapestries are especially great if you live in an apartment or dorm where you can’t make any holes in your walls to hang art. If you can’t use clear pushpins (Amazon) on your walls, then these tapestries are light enough to use self-adhesive velcro (Amazon).
So if you’re wondering if Redbubble tapestries are any good, this super quick review will hopefully help you decide if they’re right for you.

Are Redbubble Tapestries Good?
Quality of Materials
Before I got my first tapestry from Redbubble, I thought I was going to get one of those heavy wall hangings that my grandmother used to have when I was growing up.
This is definitely not the case.
These tapestries are made of very light fabric. The edges are neatly finished with some kind of binding which you can only see from the back and it looks professionally hand-sewn.
When I feel Redbubble’s tapestries, right away I can tell that they’re durable and made from high-quality fabric (for the price). They feel like a lightweight tablecloth fabric.
One thing you should know about these tapestries is that you might find them to be too see-through. I would personally want them to be a tad thicker, but it’s definitely OK to use as a wall hanging. I just wouldn’t use them as a curtain because the light will slightly shine through.
The fabric is thick and not thin but when held to a light you can see through it a little. The colouring is basically perfect! Very vibrantMaria P. on Aug 23, 2019 [Click here to view resources.]
Another thing that bothers me just a little are the wrinkles in the tapestry when you first get them (but I don’t blame Redbubble because they have to fold the tapestries to ship them). So I had to go visit a friend who had a steamer. It worked perfectly.
I’m sure the creases would eventually go away if you just hung it, but I don’t have the patience to wait. lol
I also heard some people put their tapestries in the dryer with a damp washcloth. I personally haven’t tried this, but I bet you shouldn’t leave it in the dryer for hours on end. Maybe keep an eye on it and check it every 10 minutes or so.
Quality of Print
I find the print quality to be amazing! The colors are really vibrant and the image is sharp.
One thing to note is that the back of the tapestry is left white, which is usually not an problem for most people.
There’s just one issue…
If the artist doesn’t upload a high-quality image on Redbubble, or they try to enlarge their artwork/design to fit on the tapestry (they’re HUGE), the print might be blurry or pixelated.
This usually doesn’t happen because most artists on Redbubble are really good at what they do. But if you have an issue with a blurry or pixelated print, just contact Redbubble’s customer service. They’re REALLY nice and helpful when it comes to this issue!!
LOVE this image and its looks INSANE on my wall. I picked the perfect one!! really nice quality fabric, its not shiny like other tapestries I purchased and wasn’t happy with. The print quality of the photograph is so good it looks real. I’m beyond stoked and bravo to the photographer!Wendy on Feb 3, 2018 [Click here to view resources.]
As for size, these tapestries are HUGE!!!
Even the small tapestries are larger than what most people expect. So, I really do recommend that you measure your wall before you order a tapestry!
Good quality the medium size is huge! I wouldn’t go bigger then that! Graphics look awesomeStephanie K. on Jan 11, 2018 [Click here to view resources.]
Summary: Redbubble Wall Tapestry Review
So would I recommend Redbubble’s tapestries to friends and family (which includes you of course)?
These tapestries are great graduation and tween gifts because they’re a lightweight alternative to hanging up posters on your walls. In university, I had a tapestry similar to the ones sold on Redbubble. It definitely made my dorm room cozy and feel like home.
So, that’s it! Although this was probably the shortest review I’ve written to date, I hope it helped!
