Using sustainable wallpaper is not only environmentally responsible but also a healthier alternative for your family. Most wallcoverings in the market have a high rate of VOC emissions, which can negatively affect your indoor air quality. These wallpapers do not allow the walls to breathe and start releasing harmful gases. In some extreme cases, it may result in respiratory problems, asthma attacks or eye irritation. Eco-friendly home wallpaper adds colour and life to your barren walls, without posing any threat to your good health.

Grasscloth

Grasscloth home wallpaper has its origins in Asian countries, featuring the most gorgeous grass surfaces. They are made of dried Asian grasses like hemp, jute, sisal, arrowroot, sea grass or reed. There are various lines, knots and streaks marked on the wallpaper surface, which produce a highly textural look on your walls. Two rolls of grasscloth wallpapers never look the same. When hung together, they do not align vertically and create a sort of panelled look in the room.

 

 

 

Raffia

Obtained from the Raffia Palm tree native to tropical Africa and Madagascar, the raffia fibre is a strong, durable and biodegradable material. Wallpapers made of raffia strings are very popular. The raffia strings are weaved together which give them its final look. Finer weaves make the wallpaper look smooth and modern, while the thicker weaves give it a rustic feel.
