100% PURE LINEN
Novalin wallcovering is made of 100% linen, purchased in Belgium which produces the highest quality linen available in the world.
Linen is made of the flax plant, Linum Usita, an exclusive material only produced in small quantities. It is extremely strong. The fibres, one of the strongest of the vegetable fibres, are long in lenght, resist abrasion and don’t stretch. Linen is easy to take care of since it resists dirt and stains. A characteristic of contemporary linen yarn is the presence of slubs or small knots which occur randomly across its length and which are an integrated part of the design.
During the manufacturing process, long fibred yarns are twined and dyed afterwards. Subsequently, the threads are glued on paper. Both dye and glue are water based and we use FSC certified paper, sourced from Finland, Germany and the Netherlands.
