About

What we do

Our wallpapers are handmade using the finest craftsmanship, passed down through generations of artisans dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries. Whether it be hand-painting, embroidery, print or collage or one of our pioneering techniques

How we do it

Our painters and embroiderers are located in Wuxi, at the heart of China’s silk industry. While these traditional skills have almost disappeared from Europe, the ancient crafts of Chinese painting and embroidery continue to be passed down from generation to generation in this particular region.

Each of our designs are hand-painted on silk, paper or velvet before being part or fully embroidered in silk. This is a delicate process that takes weeks – often months. With certain fully embroidered Chinoiserie designs, artists may accrue as many as 600 hours stitching individual panels.

We offer three distinct services;  tailored to your walls, entirely custom and printed-to-order.
