Amy and I have been obsessing about woven wall hangings for a while now. She’s been bookmarking great vintage options on Etsy, and I’ve been slowly stalking all my favorite contemporary designers. I picked up a great wall hanging by Nightwood during their One Kings Lane sale, but I’ve been eying a few more to add to my collection. At the top of my list are these jaw-dropping designs by Brook&Lyn’s Mimi Jung. I first saw Mimi’s designs at Of a Kind (you can listen to their After the Jump interview here), but her latest designs are breathtaking. Each of her incredibly lush wall hangings are made with a mix of yarn, copper and natural materials like palm tree bark. The colorful pieces above and below (check out that eye design — swoon) are my favorites, but you can view her full collection online right here. If I happen to stumble upon a stack of one hundred dollar bills any time soon, I’m going to make one of these mine. The texture makes me weak in the knees. xo, grace

  • hi grace,

    could you do a feature on how the wallhangings look in real homes? i love these but i’m not too sure how to make them work… thanks.

  • These are fabulous, I love the second one. Great colours and textures, creates lots of atmosphere. Thanks for sharing!

  • Wow these are just gorgeous. There’s something so rich about them – the colours, texture. I bet they take hours to make. I would love a massive one of these in my house, it would totally make a room. Thanks for sharing!

  • These are so great! I’ve been thinking of making a wall hanging for my own home and these definitely inspire!

  • I’ve recently purchased an amazing, vintage wall hanging very similar to these featured. absolutely love it but i’m unsure of how to care for it. Besides beating it with a broom for a quick dusting, do i take it to a dry cleaners?

  • I make tapestry weavings. Find a local class and learn, it’s a wonderful (and surprisingly easy) craft. Currently relearning macrame too, have several wallhangings in progress. I also have a a pile of owl macrames on the walls :)
