How do you show wares for sale to best advantage?

I've been taking photos of my newest woven wares but it's difficult to know how to arrange them. I usually drape them on a flat surface, as most of my scarves are done, or around a manequin or should it be ladyquin? This way I think people can see the draping quality of the fabric but would people rather see them flat?

Todays picture is of a red hand dyed silk shawl,about 2m 30 long and 27inches wide. I can make two of these in a week. No two are alike and the price is up to £200 each.

  1. Beautiful colours again. I think I like the pic of the scarf draped around the "personquin" best. As you said it shows the lovely drape that your woven fabric has and for me at least that would be a big selling point.
