Oriental or Asian style wallpaper

Handmade oriental wallpaper was first brought to Europe by Indian merchants in 16th century. And this wallpaper which is also known to us as an “Asian style wallpaper” soon gained its strong positions on the market. The art of Far East with its playful ornaments and almost childish patterns prompted people’s imagination and made them fantasize. However, following the fact that creating such wallpaper involved very careful and attentive to every detail work and the fact that its transportation was not cheap or easy, only a limited number of people could actually afford to get hold of this exclusive wall finishing material. Only after some time, the popularity of this wallpaper type became common. Our Asian style wallpaper will take you to the world of magic. Here, the aura of Far Eastern dynasties combined with high technologies rightfully creates the wallpaper of the 3rd millennium.
