Taluk Sisal replicates Thibaut’s Shang Extra Fine Sisal in a durable vinyl wallcovering. It’s very hard to tell which one is the real deal! The vinyl version doesn’t seam or shade and as a Type II vinyl it is suitable for contract use. This gravure-printed pattern is on vinyl with a grass emboss. This realistic faux sisal is offered in 18 stunning colors (shown here in green) and is a Type II vinyl wallcovering.
Haywood is a surface-printed faux wood pattern which features a thick raised ink that adds dimension and interest. A subtle background texture simulates natural woodgrain. It’s offered in seven colorways (shown here in charcoal).
Boa is a rotary screen-printed snakeskin pattern. The subtle colors make for a great background paper and the bold combinations with metallic make a louder statement. Shown here in Navy.
Kissimmee’s embossed alligator pattern has an impressive 39″ width offering 50–90% more coverage than narrower wallpapers. It is a non-woven paperbacked vinyl and is offered in 13 colorways ranging from light neutrals to bold magenta to black.
Carro is a cross between stone and an antique Italian mirror. The layered textures and metallic colorways give it an aged effect. The gravure print’s raised ink gives subtle texture and dimension.
The Montado Region of Portugal is where 50% of the world’s cork is harvested. Montado Cork is a faux cork pattern that imitates the real cork wallcovering found in Thibaut‘s Natural Resource collections. A raised ink on this gravure print creates a soft, velvety feel. It is offered in mostly neutral colorways with metallic and 2 colorways are printed on mylar for added glam.
Treviso Marble is a modern pattern that utilizes the gravure printing process to depict marble. Subtle tones and shading create the look and feel of real marble. It comes in seven colourways.
