Here, at Wolf-Gordon, our natural fabric wallcoverings include grass cloth wallcovering designs. The wallpapers are made of such grasses and plants such as jute and sisal. Fibers for the wallcoverings, which are renewable, are laminated to paper to prevent any glue from penetrating the surface. A wide range of grass cloth wallcovering products are featured for the home and office.
Choose from refined, fibrous, irregular or coarse textures for your wall. Variations of shadings as well as imperfections make a grass cloth wallcovering an interesting material. One of the featured plants we use is jute. Jute is used because it grows rapidly and abundantly in the wild and can be recycled.
An Energy-Friendly Wallcovering
The jute that is used in the grass cloth wallcovering products we feature is a strong thread that is cost-effective to produce. Its exceptional insulating properties and anti-static character make it even more inviting to use for a grass cloth wallcovering. Not only that, jute possesses low thermal conductivity, thereby making it an energy-friendly wallcovering as well.
Besides being used for grass cloth wallpaper products, jute cloth is used in landscaping in order to stop erosion so other plants can grow. In some instances, jute is considered a wood alternative as the stem of the jute plant contains a woody kind of inner core. However, unlike a tree, jute takes, on average, five months to mature. Jute, when used as a grass cloth wallcovering, can significantly help in the prevention of deforestation.
Much of the jute today that is used for grassy wallcovering products is harvested in the area of the Ganges Delta. The plant grows well in very warm and humid climates that feature a good deal of rain. Jute is also grown and harvested in China.
Sisal – Used for Grass Wallpapers Too
Sisal is another plant fiber that is used for grass wallcovering products. Not only is sisal used for covering walls, it is utilized in rug-making too. Sisal comes from two species of the agave plant in Central America. The fiber of the plant is produced from the plant’s leaves, although it is used for grass-type wallcoverings.
Sisal plantations are found in various areas of the world, including the Caribbean and Latin America. The plant, which is technically known as Agave sisalana, produce sword-shaped leaves that feature toothed edges that gradually dissipate as the plant matures. Each leaf of the plants holds a number of straight, lengthy. These fibers are removed through decortication. During the process, pulp and plant material are extracted from beaten leaves so the remaining fibers can be removed. The fibers are then spun into thread for textile production or are pulped in order to manufacture paper.
