Every aspect of Adelphi’s product – from paper types and paint composition to printing methods – has been thoroughly researched in institutions and archives in the US, England and France. We believe that to accurately reproduce traditional, wood block printed wallpaper it is essential to maintain fidelity to the methods and materials originally employed. By using the tools, materials, and procedures of our historic counterparts, Adelphi is able to produce wall coverings with the same distinctive character and spirit as those of the past.
