Today, wall drapery is a paper web covered with textile fibers on the front side. Drapery texture depends on the type of material:

  • Linen draperies look natural and quite spectacular. They are not inclined to collect dust on their surface. Flax is great for drapery in children's rooms or studies.
  • Silk looks luxurious in studies and bedrooms in the Provence or Empire style.
  • Jute is undemanding in care, resistant to mechanical damage and sunlight. It emphasizes such styles as the Country and the Eco.
  • Felt is the most popular. However, it is not advised to apply in rooms subject to influence of various aromas and smells, since the material actively absorbs them.
  • Velour drapery looks like a tapestry and velvet. It is very demanding in care and mostly is being used in bedrooms.
  • The Japanese Lawn is for those who love Japanese style in an interior. This type of drapery is made by fixing fiberglass yarns on a paper base.
  • Jacquard is an original material with dense base, an important feature of which is resistance to glue. Due to this, the pattern texture is being preserved in the best way.

Textile cloths of various densities, colors and textures look much richer and more saturated than usual paper and vinyl wallpapers. Besides, with proper care, textile coating retains its original appearance for much longer.
