It is generally preferred that the GRAIN of the fabric on framed pieces runs LANDSCAPE (horizontally). This is in keeping with the GRAIN as it appears on draperies and on wall coverings. The GRAIN, as referred to here, runs from edge to edge across the width as indicated on the sketch. Bear in mind that many fabrics have no distinct GRAIN to speak of, and that in such cases this instruction does apply.
