Kami-ito 

“Kami means “paper” in Japanese, and Ito “strip” - Kami-ito is the Japanese art to realize thin paper strips, which are subsequently woven into delicate and creative paper weaves. The wallcovering collection Kami-ito, signed Omexco, consists mainly of paper strips, sometimes plain or tone-on-tone, sometimes woven in multicolour geometric designs. Each group of colours is enhanced by a different wallcovering, which combines paper strips and woodsticks, in superb colours. The variation of weaves and patterns makes it possible to create interesting and colourful interior settings, natural and bright.”

Trianon

“The classic designs which were popular in Europe in the 17th/18th century are re-created in this jacquard woven wallcovering collection of Omexco. Damasks, floral and vegetal motifs, intertwined designs and stripes remind of a glorious past, in a contemporary interpretation. Thanks to sophisticated weaving techniques, subtle multicoloured shades appear in gold/royal blue, champagne/pearl grey, snow white/cream, chalk white/grey, burgundy red/purple, Trianon-grey and Marie-Antoinette blue.”

Minerals

“The wallcovering collection "Minerals" of Omexco consists of mica and glassbeads. Mica or “vermiculite” is a mineral formed out of a chemical reaction between quartz and granite. Exposed to extreme heat, the mineral expands into worm-like pieces 2000 or even 3000 % of their original size, in a spectrum of brilliant colours. The characteristics of this mineral have been known in Japan for 6 centuries. Mica is also known as “strange stone”, “breathing stone” or “miracle stone”. After the mica has been heat-expanded, it is crushed into small pieces and stuck on a non-woven backing. Finally, the surface is coloured.”

Brocades

“"Brocades" are richly decorated woven fabrics, often made in coloured silks and adorned with gold or silver threads. The name comes from the Italian word "broccato", meaning "embossed cloth". The ornamental brocading is produced by a supplementary, non-structural weft in addition to the standard weft, thus creating an appearance of embroidery. The designs of Omexco’s wallcovering collection "Brocades" seem to have been embroidered on the silky rayon yarns. In fact, they are printed, sometimes with, sometimes without metallic foil. The printing technique, and the delicate yarns (which are partly matt, partly shiny) create a subtle textile/weaving effect. Classic designs (damasks, stripes, flowers) alternate with a geometric art deco design, and a timeless simili-plain. All colours are elegant and sophisticated : jade, silver, frost white, pearl grey, anthracite, cappuccino, verdigris, chalk, french rose, vanilla, bronze, champagne, platina.”

Sumatra

““…Dream, travel, escape…why not to a beautiful isle, such as Sumatra in Indonesia?...” The collection “Sumatra” from Omexco will put you in the right mood… Natural fibres of sisal, bamboo, abaca, rattan, bacnoc; coco midrib and lopiz woven with silk; capiz shells… all these unique materials can be combined, with their stunning colours varying from bright scarlet, white gold, turquoise, steel grey to more subdued colours such as sandalwood, burgundy, leather brown, or soft and natural shades of white, ivory, pearl grey, linen, lime-tree green… The natural gloss of the mother-of-pearl matches perfectly with the matt finish of the natural fibres bamboo, abaca, lopiz, rotan and bacnoc, and equally with the sparkling shimmer of the sisal weaves on metallic backing. The diversity of materials and beautiful colours stimulate creativity; whether used individually or combined, they enhance your room setting with a touch of exotic yet natural refinement.”

Palazzo

““Palazzo” evokes Venetian palaces, luxurious designs and sumptuous colours, softened by time and filtered light. Large baroque damasks, elegant stripes, subtle flowers, spring-coloured leaf designs all combine with beautiful metallic plains. Soft pastel shades of jade, ivory, pearl grey, champagne pink alternate with stronger colours like verdigris, rust, anthracite, gold, taupe. Embossed metallic reflections look as if applied by gold leaf.”

Zephyr

“The most precious yarns were selected for this collection of luxurious wallcovering : silk, horsehair and linen. Horsehair - Horsehair is a fascinating fibre, which has for centuries been woven by craftsmen throughout the world. It has stood the test of time thanks to its natural beauty and durability. The undyed colours and specific texture of horsehair will bestow authentic luxury and prestige to your interior. Linen - Flax, the plant used to make linen, is inherently ecological: it requires no irrigation, it is biodegradable, and every part of the plant has value. Belgian linen has a superior quality due to the unique climate and the expertise of many generations of weavers. Local production makes it possible to continuously improve the technical and aesthetic qualities of this timeles fabric. Silk - The most precious and luxurious natural fibre amongst all, silk, has been desired and treasured since ancient times. No other yarn equals the lustre, the lightness nor the delicate texture of silk, which thus remains a product of subtle refinement.”

Fragments

“Inspiration for the “fragmented” design of this range were the irregular walls of limestone often used in the “Case Study Houses”, an architectural experiment in US, sponsored by the magazine Arts&Architecture, which commissioned the best architects of the day (a.o. Richard Neutra, Ray and Charles Eames...) to design and build affordable modern houses during the residential housing boom after the second world war. Strong flashes of grass green, tangerine, rust... alternate with softer shades as misty frost, jade, pearl grey, taupe, snow white, limestone grey, ivory. Some items are enhanced with metallic sparkles in yellow or white gold, copper, silver, platinum, bronze... Thanks to the sober and timeless elegance of the design, the rich colouring, as well as the technical qualities of the wallcoverings, this collection can be used in different settings (residential but also hotels/offices – in contemporary or classic room settings).”

Illusions

“Rayon yarns soft as silk; metallic reflections which are printed but seem woven… this range of textile wallcovering by Omexco plays with structures and effects – and the illusion seems to become reality… A wide range of bright colours brings the collection to life : sparkling shades like fuchsia, tangerine, sunny yellow, anise green, turquoise with a touch of silver – more subdued colours such as khaki, night blue, hazy grey – and finally soft and soothing touches of cream, snow white, ivory, azure…
Natural tone-on-tone references alternate with items enhanced with metallic accents of white or yellow gold – or silver.”

Haiku

“A “Haiku” is a term created by the poet Shiki Masaoka (1867-1902); it is a very short and stylized form of Japanese poetry, characterized by a “seasonal reference”, mostly drawn from nature, represented by the juxtaposition of two images or ideas, separated by a “cutting”. The name “Haiku” suits Omexco’s wallcovering collection very well, since it “reads as a poem”. Paper strings on non-woven backing are combined with rayon textile warps and with plain non-woven wallcovering. A light pearlescent shimmer enhances all references. The different materials in this collection make it possible to combine structures and matching colours, in order to create an interior setting full of variety whilst retaining a “zen” feel. The colours are delicate and are graduated in very subtle shades – touches of pearl grey and ivory alternate with golden straw and greige. Silver and fresh grey- green illuminate darker and deeper colours such as anthracite and bronze.”

On the Rocks

“The name of this Omexco collection of printed non-woven wallcovering can be interpreted in two ways : The collection is built around the theme of stone and wood effects/textures - and the wide range of lively and natural colours are supposed to bring you in the right mood to relax. The designs of the collection remind nature, and nature/our environment were permanently on our mind when we developed “On the Rocks”. The products obtained an ecological label (they meet the ecological standards of IGI, international wallcovering association), an FSC® label (licence code C001706), they are manufactured with recycled fibres, and printed thanks to solar energy. The colours bring you from the forests to the mountains, with subtle shades of natural rock, stone and marble – foliage green, oak, mahogany, sandalwood, white birch… And you’ll cross a few lakes, a clear blue one, during the day, and a mysteriously dark one, at twilight…”

Neva

“For this Omexco collection, developed in cooperation with our Russian distributor, we have chosen the name of the famous river which flows through St Petersburg. Classic designs (damasks, stripes, arabesques) are delicately printed on silky rayon yarns, and combined with a very elegant and timeless simili-plain. The first colours in the book seem to have originated from the Neva river: blue-grey, misty haze – then the palette changes to tender cream, amber, pearl, topaz, taupe, jade – switch to majestic green and red – freeze in snowwhite and frost white – challenge in trendy purple and violet tones – warm up in bronze and caramel shades. Some items are enhanced by the metallic shimmer of yellow or white gold foil, platina or bronze – applied on the printed yarns by embossing. The combination of beautiful classic designs with sophisticated printing and embossing techniques, as well as “up-to-date” colours, make the Neva collection irresistibly enchanting.”

Waves

“As indicated by the name “Waves”, the principal motif of this collection is an undulating design, which cruises throughout this collection in shades of frost white, rust, jade, purple, mink, misty grey, taupe, violet, champagne, pink quartz... Certain references are enhanced with metallic sparkles in yellow or white gold, red or yellow copper, silver, platinum, bronze... Thanks to the sober and timeless elegance of the design, the rich colouring, as well as the technical qualities of the wallcoverings, this collection can be used in different settings (residential but also hotels/offices – in contemporary or classic room settings).”

The wallcovering collection “Mica” of Omexco comprises different structures and combinations of mica: roughly cut mica, small mica, natural mica, embossed mica, printed mica, mixtures of mica with recycled paper or with olefin. The material and the structure of this wallcovering allow sparkling shades of sand, starry night, amber, onyx, mother-of-pearl, charoite, gold, bronze, topaz, emerald, copper, anthracite...”

Allure

“By its charm and elegant refinement, the collection “Allure” seduces at first sight. The inspiration for the designs is classic, but the colour scheme and the (over-)size of some patterns confer a surprisingly contemporary look to the textile wallcoverings. Damasks in different interpretations, whirling curls, stripes, a silky plain and a metallic all-over effect are declined in shades of cream, beige, amber, anthracite, dark olive, scarlet, nutmeg, frosty white, mauve, bronze, pearl. Some patterns are enhanced by gold and silver, embossed on the textile yarns. The combination of printing and embossing techniques, as well as the use of matt printing colours, silky yarns, sparkling metallic effects result in wonderful light reflections and delicate trompe-l’oeil-effects.”

Lotus

“The lotus flower is one of the popular designs in “Art Nouveau”, an art movement at the turn of the 20th century. Typical for this style are the decorative, curvy lines, floral ornaments and the lack of symmetry. These style components are reflected in the non-wovens of the Lotus collection. They are combined with matching linen warps and a plain non-woven embossed with metal foil. Matt and glossy effects are harmoniously alternated, in fresh white and turquoise shades, glossy silver, copper and platinum tones, natural beige and sandy colours, sunny orange, yellow and gold, cool grey and trendy violet.”

Akoya

“Akoya pearls are cultured pearls produced mainly in Japan and China, and renowned and appreciated for their lustre. The collection “Akoya” is a “pearl” amongst natural wallcoverings : - Three variations on “sisal fibres” : a plain sisal in its pure state, in natural colours; a more “openwork” weave, showing the shiny metallic colours used for the printing of the backing; a plain sisal with a classic floral design, applied on the wallcovering by the embossing of gold leaves (white or yellow gold). - A jute (hessian) wallcovering with a satin finish, in single or dual colours, occasionally enhanced with the addition of a sparkling thread - Two types of mica : vermiculite, with a rather rough structure, and natural mica shells. The guideline throughout this collection is the semi-brilliant aspect, the pearly lustre created either by the product itself, either by the printing techniques. The colours vary from natural shades (pearl, linen, straw, tobacco, cream), to trendy bold colours (fuchsia, purple, violet, acid green), alternated by reflections of gold, bronze, copper, silver.”

Horizons

“Omexco was the first editor who had the idea to present the samples of wallcovering horizontally in the pattern books, and to recommend horizontal installation (or “railroad hanging”). A horizontal installation opens up new perspectives, allows new ways of decorating, creates different and stunning visual results... The new Omexco collection “Horizons” combines linen yarns, printed rayon yarns, chenille yarns, and dyed matt/shiny yarns. A large variety of textile yarns, each with specific characteristics and aspects. The rather “rough” and matt linen, the printed rayon yarn with subtle tone-on-tone shades and silky touch, the soft and luxurious chenille, the dyed matt/shiny yarn reflecting the light with varying intensity. Each material is available in a rainbow of colours: scarlet and wine red - golden and sunny yellow, straw and abaca - cream and clay - mint, anise and jade green - quartz pink and mother-of-pearl - smoky and misty grey and pearl - night blue, blueberry and limestone - deep indigo and turquoise - lavender and amethyst.”

Eternity

“All stone colours offered by nature appear throughout the collection in shades of marble white, malachite green, jaspe red, granite black, quartz pink, topaz yellow, rocky chalk, jade green, onyx grey, amethyst violet, dark amber… A washable and ecological non-woven has been selected to print all these stone effects. The product has obtained an ecological label (it meets the ecological standards of IGI, international association of wallcovering manufacturers), as well as a FSC label (the mark of responsible forest management). It contains recycled fibres, and is printed thanks to solar energy.”

Nomad

“The collection Nomad of Omexco invites you to travel throughout the world from season to season, crossing natural and colourful equatorial forests, blue waters of the Pacific Ocean, golden deserts, earthy and burgundy tundra, silent and white siberian taiga. Waterlily leaves are woven in lively and generous colours: emerald green, yellow gold, wine-red, turquoise, frozen white, lustrous chestnut and ebony, Baikal charoite. The matching non-woven wallcoverings sometimes evoke arid textures of dry earth, swept by gusts of wind. Sometimes, smoother and enhanced with metallic effects, they reflect the light of new landscapes arising at the horizon before the eyes of the marvelling nomad, and suddenly the red, gold, lapis lazuli shades... sparkle with light.”
