The writing's on the wall(paper)

All our wallpaper partners use paper sourced from sustainably managed forests.

Creating small batches to avoid wastage, we even use excess cut-offs in the packing process, so nothing goes to waste. We make sure that our designs hang around on your walls and not the planet.

  • One tree planted per roll of wallpaper sold

  • Made-to-order batches reduce waste
