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.
