DELICACY OF SOME WALLCOVERINGS

Natural products and textiles wallcoverings are delicate. Never allow glue nor water to get on the front of the material as this will leave permanent marks.

 

CLOSING THE SEAMS

Most natural and textile wallcoverings are more fragile and you will need to use a soft rubber roller. This is indicated on the hanging instructions, that are included in your order, by below symbols:

Using a special joint roller or a palette will damage the materials as you can see in the pictures below.

PERFECT SEAMS FOR NATURAL PRODUCTS

Natural products can be as nature: naturally imperfect, and therefore so charming.

Due to the irregularities of these natural products, it is not always possible to obtain perfect seams or corners, especially for the dark colours. To make the wall surface less visible in between the strips, you can paint the wall in a colour similar to the chosen wallcovering, prior to installation.

REVERSE HANGING

If you find a flashy sticker on the roll (see picture), you need to reverse hang the wallcovering. Thanks to reverse hanging, shading between different strips of wallcovering is avoided.

Reverse hanging means that when cutting the different strips, the first strip is hung straight. The second strip is hung in the opposite (reverse) direction. The third strip is hung straight again, and so on.

MICA WALLCOVERINGS

Mica wallcoverings are manufactured with mineral stones and, understandably, these will vary. Some small mica particles may come loose during transport or during installation. Generally, this is because there is a “surplus” of mica, and there will be no marks left on the wallcovering. However, if after installation you notice some empty spots because of lacking mica, these can be mended by glueing loose mica particles into these areas (taken from a left over piece of wallcovering), with a transparent non-staining adhesive.
