Made from the fibres of the flax plant, linen textiles are some of the oldest in the world yet feel intrinsically fresh and contemporary. They embody tradition without seeming traditional. Tapetex draws on the rich heritage of linen within close reach of our home base in the Netherlands. The fibres that become Tapetex's linen wallcovering are harvested in nearby Belgium and France – areas famous for their long history of linen production.
Linen’s natural diversity is clearly expressed in Tapetex’s legacy series of classic neutrals. No design or embellishment is added; this is linen in its purist form. A showcase of various structures and scales defined by yarn sizes, slubs and weaving techniques. A range of saturation that runs from bleached to natural
a design that tells the story of the collection
Linen’s organic inspiration extends to certain patterns, such as a motif that references the fabric’s origin: the flax plant.
plant inspired dyes
The use of colour respects linen’s bio-based nature, with palettes of plant-inspired dyes. Selecting from the range of shades is like stepping into a spice store, strolling through a fresh fruit and vegetable market or visiting a traditional denim dyer.
