Non Woven wallcoverings are made from 70% wood pulp and 30% recycled polyester, the wallcovering surface is finished with Lurotex protector preventing oil / water splashes penetrating the material. Non Wovens are hardwearing and washable.
Linen is made only from natural flax fibre. It stems directly from the earth rather than a factory. The history of linen goes back to ancient Egypt where Cleopatra dressed in linen. In the 15th century Venetian artists first started to paint on to linen and thereafter it became the principal substrate for all the great schools of European Painting. Linen is the strongest natural textile fibre known to man. It has excellent anti-static properties, will not attract dust and is able to absorb up to 20% of its own weight in moisture.
Silk Wallcovering is produced by using irregular hand spun / hand dyed yarn which is woven on handlooms. The combination of a fine vertical warp yarn together with a hand-spun coarse horizontal weft yarn and the irregular beating of the handloom gives the wallcovering its rich horizontal looking texture. There is no textile wallcovering more distinguished or luxurious than silk.

Vahallan Papers: www.vahallan.com
VAHALLAN was established in 1997 after the owner, Dan Nelson, attempted to repair a section of damaged wallpaper in his own home. Once he realized a simple repair option didn’t exist, he became inspired to create a much more artistic wall covering alternative that would be applied to the wall in smaller “panels”. He envisioned that smaller decorative panels would not only create more beautiful walls, it would also improve the reparability of any paper damage. Through years of hard work, perseverance and constant innovation, Dan and the Vahallan team continues to build on Vahallan’s strong reputation for creating some of the finest decorative wall coverings in the industry. Even though the company has grown dramatically over the years, the basic principles of Vahallan remain ingrained in the foundation of the business. Our drive to stay at the forefront of the wall covering industry fuels our passion, creativity and innovation. Our entire staff of artisans constantly strive to produce the most beautiful designs available on the market. Our commitment to hand- painting each and every one of our patterns will continue to inspire elegant, one-of-a-kind room designs and further solidify the success of Vahallan for years to come.
