Collection of silk wall treatments
We offer three unique silk wall coverings styles: Silk and Musa. Each with its own appearance, atmosphere and colour spectrum. The styles come from different collections of wall textiles.
The Silk wall textile from the Nature of Sorts collection has a beautiful structure and a matte appearance. The slightly rough weave creates a unique, rustic look. Silk is available in 15 different colours. The shades range from sand, brown and caramel to golden yellow, light red and petrol blue. All radiate peace due to the matte complexion.

The colour range is neutral. Musa contains combinations of black and white, copper/black, beige/brown and gold/green.

What is our silk wall treatment made of?
Silk comes from the silkworm and has been known in China for more than four thousand years. The story goes that the Chinese emperor's wife discovered the fibre, and only the emperor was allowed to wear silk. Partly because of this, the fabric has an ultimate luxury status.
The very intensive production process of silk also contributes to this status. In order to produce 1 kg of silk, 6,000 caterpillars are used, which eat as many as 200 kg of leaves from the mulberry tree.
The silk for our wall textiles is produced in India, and we use different types, such as Matka silk and Dupion silk. We abbreviate silk with SE.
What is Matka silk?
Matka silk is a special type of silk from India. Matka means 'raw silk fabric' and comes from thick threads spun by the silkworm. For the production of this silk, the harvesters wait until the butterfly has come out of the cocoon. As a result, the cocoon is broken and many threads are torn. The unevenness this causes creates an interesting texture.
Wat is Dupion silk?
Dupion silk also comes from India and is often woven from two different colour threads, as a result of which the textile appears to change colour in the light, a special effect. Dupion is made of rough silk and, like Matka silk, has an irregular structure.
Applications of silk wall textiles
Silk wall treatments make every room a unique environment. The shiny, rough and unique texture of the textile makes it suitable for all kinds of walls and spaces. Whether you want to decorate your bedroom, living room or hall, with silk wall treatments, every room becomes elegant. Our silk wall treatments are ideal for shops, hotel rooms or similar spaces. There are endless possibilities for our exclusive silk wall treatments.
How do you apply silk wall treatments?
The application of paper wallpaper or fleece wallpaper is not comparable to the application of silk wall textiles. Silk is more delicate and therefore more sensitive to stains. These are also harder to remove than with wallpaper. We therefore recommend that the wall textiles be applied by a professional hanger. We are happy to put you in touch with knowledgeable professionals for the best result.
Some of our wall treatments are supplied with the selvedge of the fabric still attached. These must be removed before you apply the wall treatment. This allows you to match the silk wall textiles on pattern. The material must be processed with care. Follow the steps below for the best result when applying your silk wall textiles.
- Check whether the batch numbers of the different roles match.
- Check the wall textiles for flaws. In the event of a flaw or when in doubt, contact us directly.
- Ensure that the surface meets the following requirements:
- Dry: Make sure the wall is completely dry. No damp areas and wait a few days after applying new plaster.
- Strong: Powdery walls and new stucco must be pre-treated with an adhesive primer.
- Flat: Any unevenness can cause disturbances in the wall textiles. Bumps should be sanded flat, old wallpaper remnants removed and holes filled.
- Clean: The wall must be clean and free of dust.
- Smooth: Irregularities in the surface can in some cases be visible through the wall textiles.
- Lightly absorbent: the surface must be able to absorb sufficient but not too much glue. New plaster often sucks too much glue, and that causes poor adhesion.
Finally, it is important that you use good glue for applying the silk wall textiles. We recommend using DWC Colforte for the best and most powerful adhesion result.
