Index Wide creates a bold and sculptural patterning with a decisively random feel. The larger 3’-0” x 1’-0” (91.4 x 30.5 cm) tile size makes for quicker coverage and the height variation between the wool felt strips brings a strong linear and dimensional quality to the design. Made using high quality 100% Wool Design Felt, natural cork composite backing, and low VOC adhesives, each order includes equal numbers of four pattern elements that are arranged according to one standard configuration. Index Wide tiles can be specified with up to four colors per wall and install easily with heavy-duty wallcovering adhesive.

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 between individual tiles and expect color variation beyond the normal commercial range.
