Mica or “vermiculite” is a mineral formed out of a chemical reaction between quartz and granite. Exposed to extreme heat, the mineral expands into pieces 2000 or even 3000 % of their original size, in a spectrum of brilliant colours. The characteristics of this mineral have been known in Japan for 6 centuries. Mica is also known as “miracle stone”, or “breathing stone”. After the mica has been heat-expanded, it is crushed into small pieces and glued on a non-woven backing. Finally, the surface is coloured.


The wallcovering collection "Graphite" comprises endless variations on mica : the popular structured mica is combined with mica shells, with mica mixed with recycled paper, with a very natural looking mixed-sized mica. Some items are printed with a pattern reminding raked sand in japanese zen-gardens, others are embossed with metallic foil, in a tiny square design or an elegant wave.


The natural sparkle of the mineral stones enhance dark colours like graphite, night blue, onyx ; they confer a mother-of-pearl glow to gold, cream, grey ; they brighten up purple, anthracite, brown, charcoal. Metallic foil adorns the mica stones with touches of yellow and white gold, platina, silver, copper, aluminium.


The wallcoverings have a non-woven backing, which makes the installation easy (application of glue on the wall – no humidifcation of the back). They are all ecological, and have a good fire rating (EU B S1 D0) . Width is 91 or 92 cm.


All items are supplied cut length (no minimum order).
