Elitis have some always produced great wallpapers but they really have surpassed themselves with their new collections recently. Their designs are imaginative and beautifully executed and they have managed to achieve some amazing textures and colours with their innovative approach to production. I have pulled out just a few that really caught my imagination and although the images are lovely, the papers are even better in the flesh.
This is Rudolph from their Wonderland collection of six 3D
The texture of this paper is wonderful and makes the colours look amazing. Bolinao made from bark, palm leaves and bamboo.
Cap Vert is also on a raffia and bark background and is based on a display of portraits pinned on a wooden wall.
Cesar is a fabulous paper and gives an extraordinary impression of carved plasterwork
Marikina is made from strips of hand crafted paper dipped in vegetable dyes and hand glued together – it is beautiful!
Robinson – the abaca bark is dyed using natural pigments and the result is beautiful colour shading
And finally one of my favourites, Sauvage, which is a 3 metre square water colour artwork printed on the same natural textured paper.
If you are interested in using any of these papers, I would strongly recommend getting a sample to see the quality of the product and to see the textures they achieve. Contact us or Abbott and Boyd.
