What is grasscloth wallpaper?

A grasscloth wallpaper is a natural fibre product which is hand woven and has a wallpaper backing. 

The finished look is more rustic than a traditionally hung wallpaper. There will be tags, frays and differences in colour. The joins will show.  Each panel may be different or offset. These “imperfections” are what make the look and are to be embraced. If you are looking for a seamless finish this wallpaper type may not be right for you.

What is the difference between grasscloth and grassweave?

Grasscloth has a finer weave as opposed to the chunkier grassweave. Although Grasscloth has become the umbrella name for similar natural fibre products such as grassweave, sisal, bamboo, jute, seagrass and raffia.

These all have a similar appearance but essentially are made from different natural, raw materials giving each their own unique look.

Advantages of Hanging Grasscloth wallpaper

This wonderful natural material gives any space a luxurious, warm style and organic feeling in a very contemporary way. 

Many of these organic hand made wall coverings are unpatterned and are used for adorning the walls as a textural luxe backdrop.

However there are some grasscloth style wallpapers that come patterned. 

Disadvantages of Grasscloth wallpaper

Grasscloth wall coverings are hand made and with that comes a bigger price tag.

As these are hand finished without a top coating they can’t get wet. This means caring for your grass cloth is a light dry brush instead of wiping with a wet cloth as you can with other wallpaper types. If the grasscloth gets wet it may leave a stain.

If you own a cat perhaps a grasscloth is not the best option. This is because cats love to sharpen their claws on it! It is similar in texture to your feline friends scratching post. So you may end up with some costly wallpaper repairs! Instead consider a faux look grasscloth.

How to hang Grasscloth wallpapers

Grasscloth wallpaper is installed differently to standard wallpaper. Instead of starting at one end of the wall and working across we would find the centre of the wall or the centre of the centre and start there. This is beacuse of the joins showing. By hanging in this way you are ensuring the seams are aligned in a way that is pleasing to the eye.
