Vintage Japanese Grasscloth Wallpaper Hand Dyed Red Handmade Gold Foil Backing. Stunningly elegant, fine thread natural grasscloth wallpaper. Hand made and red hand dyed on gold foil backing. The gold foil makes the wallpaper look like raw silk!! It almost has a shine when viewed from an angle!Both companies are no longer in business. This beautiful wall covering is believed to date from the 1970s/1980s. It was acquired at the estate sale of an Old Guard Southern Society maven and descendant of one of the earliest settlers of Atlanta.
Japan no longer makes grasscloth wallpaper, so this is truly a rare, stunningly gorgeous, vintage find! Measures about 7.5 yards x 36 inches. Rolls are in good vintage condition.The worst of the rolls is shown in photos 4,5,6 & 7; luckily, the damage is at the beginning of the roll, and would most likely be trimmed before installation. Rolls contain original packing sheet and hanging instructions. Feel free to message me for more photos, if desired.
Genuine grass cloth requires just a bit of care in its application and principle among the procedures is the necessity to paste, trim and hang one strip at a time. Genuine grass cloth is made more primitively than any other known wall decoration on the market and for that reason contains certain distinguishing but desirable imperfections. It is important to shade the material using different shades on different walls for best uniformity, however, there is no such thing as perfection in any hand fashioned material which, of course, is also its charm.
