Hanging a Tapestry

I have an 8-foor-square tapestry. Unfortunately, it has no loops or hooks so I have no idea how to hang it from the wall. Any suggestions? (more inside)

My sister bought me this giant hand-dyed tapestry from the Renaissance Faire. There's no loops or foldovers for a hanging rod- it's just a big-ass piece of cloth. I don't want to put nails directly into it or sew it to anything. My ghetto-cheap idea right now it to clip it with binder clips, then hang the clips holding the tapestry from the wall with nails.
I'm willing to make the 1.5-mile walk to my nearest Target, but only if I know there's something I can buy that might not look as drom-room-cheap as my idea. I think what I need, essentially, is the home-decor equivalent of a giant clip to hold the tapestry and then hang from a nail. Does anything like this exist?
