Grasscloth

Definition

A natural, textured type of wallpaper, made from various types of grass or other natural materials. It is attached to a rice paper backing. Grasscloth is environmentally friendly because the material is renewable.

Things you need to know

Grasscloth does not withstand water and can only be cleaned by vacuuming. It is therefore not suitable for areas that are likely to get moist, such as bathrooms.

Cost Considerations

Since grasscloth is hard to clean, and can be expensive to buy, mistakes can be costly. It may be cheaper to hire a professional paperhanger than waste expensive paper because of mistakes. Grasscloth wallpaper averages $80 to $120 per roll.

Costs vary greatly by region (and even by zip code). To get free estimates from local contractors, please indicate yours.
