The Designs

Harris Stripe woven from the finest abaca fibre, this paper incorporates an elegant wide width stripe in three shades of camel, parchment and a delicate pearlised ivory.

Lomond also uses the abaca fibre and is woven in the same way as Harris Stripe.  It is produced in similar colourings of camel, parchment and ivory.

Hamilton is a sophisticated handmade design offering a chunky contemporary look with a raised surface. Coloured in subtle metallic shades of soft gold, gilver, pewter, burnished copper and pearlised ivory.

Iona, woven from sisal grass, offers a dense weave and matt finish in six smart colourings of camel, biscuit, silver grey, stone, brick and chocolate.

Melrose Stripe is the second of our striped wallcoverings. Made from a fine grade sisal grass, offering a rustic yet refined look, Melrose Stripe is produced in two shades of old gold and hazel.

Elgin offers a more glamorous version of Lomond, featuring threads of metallic gold and silver running through a close abaca weave. Produced in three striking colourings of gold/bronze and silver/grey and a muted stone.

Dunoon is available in a single smart parchment shade. It is composed of fine strands of jute, woven and knotted together to produce a more substantial rustic look.
