The wingspan is 14–18 mm. The moth flies from June to September depending on the location.
The larvae feed on animal skin, bird nests, pellets, fur, clothing and floor and furniture covering made of animal skin.
Tapestry moths complete their cycles within a year and are more like webbing clothes moths in that they spin webbing in areas where they like to reside. Their speed of development depends entirely upon local temperature, humidity and food supplies.
