Trendy in past decades, grass cloth fell out of fash­ion for a time, then came roar­ing back in recent years thanks to its organic, ecofriendly con­struc­tion and tex­tural rich­ness. Grass cloth is a wall cov­er­ing woven from long strips of dried nat­ural fibers, usu­ally jute, grass, hemp or other sim­i­lar plants.  It comes in a vari­ety of weaves, from fine to chunky, and in both nat­ural and dyed col­ors and can look sleek and con­tem­po­rary, rough and rus­tic, and any­thing in between.  A clas­sic wall cov­er­ing, its crisp ele­gance and visual depth can leave you breathless.

Grass cloth works nearly any­where in the home, but because it doesn’t with­stand mois­ture well, it’s not a good choice for high-humidity areas such as poorly ven­ti­lated bath­rooms. It shines in liv­ing and din­ing spaces, offices, libraries and bed­rooms. And its thick weave makes it an excel­lent part­ner for walls that aren’t com­pletely smooth.
