21 Nov Friday Files by: BOYAC – Process Of Making Grasscloth
We all know grasscloth looks gorgeous on walls, but do you know how much effort goes into making it? Check out this behind-the-scene look at the multi-step process of making grasscloth – starting with harvest, to hand-loom weaving, and with a pattern like Zagora, to precision printing. The finished product is quite a masterpiece!
Made from sustainable, renewable fibres, like the sisal pictured
After harvesting fibres are sun-dried for low energy production
Fibres are then dyed a variety of colours
The fibre colour is then checked for consistency
Freshly dyed fibres are then laid out to dry in the sun.
Hand-woven by skilled artisans on a loom
Backed with chemical-free paper
Small threads and fibres are removed at final inspection.
Some grasscloth wallpapers go through an additional printing step, like this “Zagora” wallpaper from our supplier Thibaut.
