Wallpaper Made From Woven Strips of Recycled Newspaper

Newsworthy is the latest wallpaper from textile and product designer Lori Weitzner, and it's made from strips of recycled newspaper that are woven together to create a textural surface. It's a beautiful and interesting tactile experience.

Old newsprint strips are handwoven on a loom and then paperbacked, a process similar to grasscloth (where you weave grass on a loom and layer it on paper). Strips are woven with nylon thread to make the paper more durable and finished with a water-based topcoat to help protect against yellowing and staining.

Sold in 5 yard increments, width 47 inches. See their website for ordering details.
