Natural faux has is a wallpaper trend that has gotten a lot of noise in 2015 not just in wallpaper but even in furniture and décor. And it doesn’t stop there. Its popularity in ultramodern and contemporary interiors is only getting louder. We loved natural faux in 2015 for the clean and bold linear styles.

Grasscloth is made with natural grass fibers, like sisal, jute, or bamboo, that are intricately woven together to create an earthy coloured and fresh interior ambiance. Each type harbors different qualities that vary in the woven pattern including loose to tight ends that achieve different visual finishing effects.

A new thrilling addition to grasscloth wallpaper that is on the rise in 2016 is overprinting over grasscloth. You can now amp up and hybridize your grasscloth and print your favourite patterns onto the wallpaper using it as a backdrop or substrate for imaginative creations and designs or even douse it in a metallic coating for a lustrous finish like no other.
