Back in the day, no one bothered to redo the walls unless the paper was totally worn out or mushrooms got to it. And you couldn’t blame them, really. Wallpaper took ages to apply (and remove), not to mention a great deal of skill. Now enter the age of non-woven wallpaper and all the advantages it brings …
Non-woven wallpaper is an innovative mixture of synthetic and natural fibres which are also used for making gauze, coffee filters and teabags. The fibres are combined with binders, reinforced with acrylates and usually blended with extra pigments to ensure opacity. Ever since non-woven wallpaper was first introduced about a decade ago, it has done nothing but gain market share. Sales have more than doubled since 2007, while regular paper sales are down 43 percent. Non-woven is fast becoming every interior designer and wallpaper printer’s preferred substrate for at least four reasons.
A general panic about mould-related illnesses was one of the main reasons why wallpaper fell from grace somewhere back in the 90s. Wallpaper in itself evidently did not cause mould issues, but the nature of the paper substrate manufacturers used meant that wallpaper was unable to breathe, locking in vapours between itself and the wall. None of that with non-woven wallpaper, though, which is a breathable material.
More and more wallpaper manufacturers are turning to digital printing, for which non-woven is the perfect (and only) substrate. It remains stable both in dry and humid conditions and is perfect for wallpapering offices and other public areas!
Need we say more? Non-woven wallpaper is renowned for its sturdiness, making it durable and not to forget washable.
A stable substrate also guarantees seamless results, and wallpaper that is both easy to apply and dry strippable. Gone are the days when removing old wallpaper meant steaming and scraping. Some types of non-woven even allow you to remove wallpaper from one wall and apply it to another, all in one piece.
