Handmade collages of Japanese paper mixed with banana fibres are the eye-catchers in this new wallcovering collection of Omexco, hence called “Collages”. Small pieces of paper are glued on a non woven backing by skilled craftsmen, either to form a stripe, or a random mosaic, enhanced here and there with a glimpse of metallic foil. The visual result is absolutely stunning. This is not just wall-covering, this is wall-art.The paper collages are combined with non-woven wallcoverings : a printed stone effect and a plain structured with sisal fibres. The colours cover a wide range from natural shades of white, ivory, vanilla, pale pink to more earthy colours like rock grey, limestone, ferruginous soil, and even trendy bold colours like fuchsia, cobalt blue, turquoise, twilight lavender, crimson, flashy orange, rust.Width of the handmade paper collages is 91 cm, the non-woven wallcoverings are 100 cm wide – all of them are supplied by the metre. The non-woven references are ecological and FSC® certified (licence code C001706). They are made with recycled fibres and printed thanks to solar energy. They have a good light resistance as well as a European fire rating B S1 D0. Moreover they are breathable (which makes them suitable for use in humid environments or climates) and they obtained a marine certificate (so they can be used on cruise ships).
