Why textile?

Here at Fancy Walls, we only print our peel and stick wallpaper designs on PVC-free woven textile, which, in our opinion, is the best option in terms of appearance, quality, and environmental friendliness. Find out more about this material and why we have chosen to use it!

PVC or polyvinyl chloride is the most commonly used material in the manufacturing of peel and stick wallpapers – it’s often referred to as vinyl wallpaper. Unfortunately, PVC has a detrimental effect on the environment and prolonged exposure to it is potentially harmful to human health. Textile, on the other hand, does not contain PVC, therefore, it can be be used in children’s bedrooms and all other kinds of rooms.

All of our products are made from OEKO-TEX certified woven textiles, which means that every component of the material has been tested for harmful substances and has been certified as harmless for human health. In addition to that, our products are made from recycled materials and are recyclable themselves, which helps to reduce the waste created in the manufacturing process.

Textile wallpaper is easier to hang, compared to vinyl, as it creates a smaller amount of air bubbles between the surface of the wallpaper and the wall. In addition to that, textile peel and stick wallpaper can be repositioned or even re-applied up to 48 hours after installation, which will allow you to rectify any mistakes made during installation. It can also be applied on slightly textured walls – the surface does not have to be completely smooth.

Textile has good resistance to water and abrasion, thus, you won’t have to worry about your walls as much. And it is also washable, which means that stains can be easily cleaned off using a wet cloth. That becomes especially important if you have kids, as they are prone to spills and creating other kinds of damage to the walls.

Textile woven wallpapers offer the same vibrancy of colors and patterns that vinyl wallpapers do, so you can be sure that your wallpapers will have the best possible appearance. Meanwhile, what sets it apart from vinyl wallpaper is that the textile woven wallpaper doesn’t shrink over time, which means that it will have a much longer lifetime. Thanks to that, there’s also no need to create wallpaper overlay, which results in a more visually appealing final result.
