As wallpaper is slowly finding respect in the modern American home, so is grass cloth.
What is it? Well, just like it sounds, grass cloth is a wall covering woven from long strips of dried natural fibers like grass or hemp. The beauty of grass cloth for a neutral backdrop is that is adds a textured look to any room. Available in both coarse and fine styles, it evokes a sense of nature and the outdoors. Because of its natural composition, grass cloth has become an increasingly popular choice in homes featuring eco-friendly and green design elements.
Best locations for grass cloth? Because it doesn't play well with moisture, it's not a great choice for high-humidity areas such as poorly ventilated bathrooms. Also, it can fray under repeated rubbing and bumping so it's not ideal for high-traffic areas. The best locations are living and dining spaces, offices, libraries and bedrooms.
