Fabric covered walls create a luxurious effect and offer unique options for patterns and textures on vertical surfaces. They also add sound absorbing and insulating qualities to a room. However, fabric cannot be applied directly to the wall without proper backing. Fabrics react to heat and humidity, which causes sagging and bubbling, and adhesives can seep through and stain the face of the fabric. Patterns and textures can also be difficult to align for a seamless appearance. By applying the proper backing to the fabric beforehand, these issues can be minimized.
Interior designers and decorators have struggled with these issues and have needed a solution for their fabrics. Our engineers came up with FabWall ® , and this opened the door to a whole new world of creative opportunities. FabWall ® is a process that we have developed which incorporates a non-woven backing applied to the back of the fabric. This adds the necessary body, stability, and makes the fabric easier to work with when cutting and pasting onto the wall.
Our proprietary process also incorporates a moisture barrier film between the non-woven backing and the fabric, which prevents the adhesive from seeping through and staining the face of the fabric. The fabric is then treated with our stain protection making it resistant to moisture and stains and easier to wipe clean.
It's easy to get started. We would love to transform your stunning silk, linen, cotton or any other fabric into a beautiful wallcovering. We can even work with your chenilles, grasscloths, or any other material that you would like to use on your wall.
