The explosion of colours of recycled sari silk, woven with strips of bakbak (bark of the banana tree) is at the origin of the name of this top-notch wallcovering collection. Each metre of this product is unique, since the colours of the silk alternate, without ever being repeated. The bakbak is coloured in chalk white, cinnamon or chestnut – three different atmospheres to illuminate, soften or intensify the rainbow of the silk fabric. Squares of crushed paper, printed in faded shades and glued on a non-woven backing are in perfect harmony with the bakbak and the natural silk.
Two geometric motifs, embossed on a printed non-woven wallcovering, complete the range and make it possible to combine different colours, structures and materials in one room.
Turquoise, lapis lazuli, fuchsia, scarlet red, chestnut, meringue white, pearl grey, anthracite, acidulated yellow and green dispute the place of honour with metallic accents of copper, white and yellow gold, silver, patine gold…
All wallcoverings are supplied cut length, no minimum order. Glue to be applied on the wall for all items (only for the crushed paper a light humidification of the back is required).
Width of the wallcoverings is 110 cm for the bakbak/silk weave and for the crushed paper, and 100 cm for the printed non-woven wallcoverings. The non-woven wallcoverings are ecological, are FSC® certified (licence code C001706) and are printed thanks to solar energy. They have a good light resistance and obtained a European fire certificate B S1 D0 as well as a marine certificate.
Launch of the collection: January 2016
Omexco wallcoverings can be found in the most prestigious hotels, high end residential projects, cruise ships and luxury shops.
A team of internal designers is in permanent dialogue with a highly qualified production team to create new designs, unexpected visual effects, subtle colours… Sometimes famous external designers/architects cooperate with Omexco, such as the Italian architect Simone Micheli or the Belgian fashion house Maison Martin Margiela.
Omexco is one of the few remaining European editors who also produces/prints wallcoverings. Thanks to this, our wallcoverings can be controlled several times, from the raw material until the finished product, and a flawless product can be guaranteed.
