Figure No. 1 breaks free of the rectilinear box. This tile-based wallcovering system uses positive and negative versions of sinuous lines to create graphic, organic patterns and tactile dimension. The composite cork-backed tiles are covered in varied thicknesses of felt to create depth and shadow. Each order includes equal numbers of four pattern elements that are arranged according to one standard configuration and attach to a wall surface with heavy-duty wallcovering adhesive. Choose one color to keep the patterning subtle or play up the dimensionality with up to four colors per wall.
Color Options 1-Color, 2-Color, 3-Color, or 4-Color per wall
Color Specification For 1-Color, specify one color available in both 3mm + 5mm. For 2-Color, specify one color in 3mm and one color in 5mm. For 3- or 4-Color options, please contact Customer Service for guidance on color selection.

Maintenance Vacuum occasionally to remove general air-borne debris. Should soiling occur, spot clean with mild soap and lukewarm water. Avoid aggressive rubbing as this can continue the felting process and change the surface appearance of the felt. Refer to 100% Wool Design Felt Maintenance + Cleaning for detailed care instructions.

Variation Wool felt is a natural material and color variation and inclusions of natural fiber on the surface are evidence of the 100% natural origin of the material. Product color is only indicative, as it is not possible to assure consistency of color in a natural product due to the natural color of raw wool and absorption of dyes. Color matching cannot be guaranteed on shipments and variation will be more pronounced beyond the normal commercial range.
