In order to use the best painters and embroiderers we located our manufacturing in Suzhou, close to Wuxi, the centre of China’s silk industry. While the tradition of these skills has sadly almost disappeared from Europe, these ancient crafts of painting and embroidery continue to be passed down from generation to generation in this part of China – for over 2500 years. The papers are hand-painted on silk, paper or velvet before being part or fully embroidered in silk, with artists spending up to 600 hours stitching individual panels.
We are a totally design-led company and we’re proud to say that our wallcoverings now adorn some of the most prestigious commercial and residential properties across the globe.View the range on the Fromental website.
We deliver a bespoke design service aimed at bringing every wall to life in its own way. Each design starts in the studio and is hand drawn and hand-made before moving into production. We create wallcoverings with longevity and eternal appeal, where every project has its own character and its own special way to surprise, whatever the space, large or small. Everything we produce comes from a deep study of the decorative arts of the past and our mission is to extend that tradition.
As well as our signature collections, we also have a range of plain wallcoverings. These luxury plain silks and papers are uniquely dyed, some finished with metallic washes and traditional techniques to add depth and variety. They can be used as plains or as backgrounds for our designs.View the range on the Fromental website.
