Walls, Windows & Floors: Tactile Wonderland Wallpaper in the UK

September 23, 2011 1:30 PM

BY Justine Hand

Founded by Rebecca Otero and Ninette van Kamp (friends who studied textile design at Central St. Martins), Tactile Wonderland is a line of sustainable fabric "wall couture": the duo's custom wall coverings pay homage to Britain's textile heritage, sometimes referencing more traditional patterns, while in other designs honoring the country's more psychedelic past. All styles are made in Britain, and are available in 30 colors and two finishes: the Sateen Range, made of woven rayon laminated onto recycled paper backing (for further texture, the Sateen Range can also be ordered with laser cut detailing), and the Paper Range, which is a combination of sustainably sourced pulp and polyester. To read more about the line, go to Design Skool.

N.B. Tactile Wonderland wall coverings are currently on view at 100 Percent Design in London, until September 25.
