Hanging a large fabic batik without framing it

    So I have this big piece of hand printed fabric I picked up in Africa many years ago. I don't want to frame it or use it as a tablecloth or bedspread. I want to hang it on a wall.

    What is the best way to do this so it doesn't look cheap or crappy?

    I would put two sided tape along all the edges. It will rest nice and straight and you wont have to use tacks or anything.

    Or you could sew a rod pocket on the back and hang it from a nice rod like a wall hanging.

    Bulldog clips will hold the fabric (use some foam or felt in the pinchy part to protect the fabric), and many of the larger ones have holes in the 'squeezy part' that can rest on a nail.

    Consider it sort of industrial look. :)

    This is the better solution.

    One other option:

    curtain rod

    curtain clips
