Your superb wallpapers are entirely painted by hand on silk according to the ancient Chinese tradition. Can you explain the production stages involved in the creation of such unique and exclusive products?
Rather than paper, they are more wall fabrics. Misha selects textiles of different weaves and thicknesses, from the thinnest pure silk to the thickest Dupion silk, with an irregular, shantung-type weave; from the light Japanese silk to the double silk, in which a light shantung is overlapped to a metallic base, revealing unique reflections on its surface.
Silk is first weaved and processed into a thin layer resembling a sheet of paper upon which our artisans paint using natural pigments. The colors are then fixed and a layer of paper is applied to the silk using natural glues and entirely artisanal processes. Once dried, the panels are trimmed and properly packed for shipping.
