A wall covering made of natural fibres and glued to a paper or fabric backing, typically hand woven in East Asia. Its textured, uneven lines give a natural, architectural interest in both rustic and urban settings. The many qualities and colours offer plenty of choice for use in any room: bedrooms, libraries, drawing rooms and hallways. It lasts a long time, but can be a bit vulnerable to knocking and scraping. On the other hand, it’s much stronger than wallpaper, so we’ve used it in manor houses and farmhouses, old buildings with uneven walls on narrow staircases to protect the walls, where there has not been enough space for wood panelling.
