Cork wall covering products are all natural cork and made by harvesting only the bark of the cork oak, the tree itself is never felled. The bark requires periodic harvesting in order to preserve the longevity of the tree. Bark is harvested about once a decade from the cork oak, and with regular and proper bark harvests, the trees live for more than a century.
Grasscloth is a cloth made of woven plant fibers, has long been a popular choice for home decor, primarily as a wall covering.

Jute is commonly known as Gunny, Burlap and Hessian. Only certain geographic regions can product a high grade, durable jute fiber.
