Falling Leaves Press in Courier Mail

June 9, 2010

Many thanks to Amanda Horswill, Journalist for the Home Trends column in the Saturday edition of Brisbane’s Courier Mail for featuring my Falling Leaves collection wallpaper!

The Falling Leaves collection of Australian-made, commercial quality, sustainable textiles and wallpaper is the result of 12 months research into sustainable materials and manufacturing in Australia under a project called Making Place: Wallpaper & Textiles, supported by a Brisbane City Council Creative Sparks Grant.

The Falling Leaves wallpaper collection is a vehicle for carrying ‘the story’ as either the focal point of a space or as part of the overall design concept in creating a space.

Printed on paper with water-based inks this wallpaper is finished with a matt varnish (commercially required for wipe-ability). This is a low VOC product suitable for commercial and residential projects.

Carrying the ‘Heavy Duty Commercial’ rating, the Falling Leaves textile collection works as an architectural device in the reconfiguration of a space. With excellent drape and handle these textiles can be hung, stretched on a screen or used in upholstery.

This collection combines rapidly renewable and biodegradable EcoWool™ (wool with zero to low pesticide residue) and bamboo. Wool is a naturally fire retardant material and bamboo an anti-bacterial resource with high absorption properties, which make it a high-performer in humid climates resisting mould and mildew, inherent qualities that mean the only finishing processes implemented are mechanical, not chemical. Wool is also known for its ability to absorb and not re-emit VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds), improving indoor air quality.

This product can be reclaimed and recycled, encouraging a move towards living in harmony with the resources available to us and is suitable for commercial and residential applications.
