We collaborated with Drew Millward, a well respected musical artist, to create ‘Hit the North’ superwide cork wallpaper. The large scale design depicts architecture from the North of England in Drew’s distinctive style featuring his skull, lightbulb and rose motifs.
Drew is well known for the images he has created for many bands from the Foo Fighters to the Queens of the Stone Age as well as for Yorkshire institutions such as the Brudenell Social Club and Bundobust.
Cork is a beautiful natural and sustainable material, grown for centuries without the use of pesticides and fertilisers in UNESCO protected woodland in Portugal, with our wallpaper then being printed locally in England. Highly prized for its sound and heat insulation properties, creating rooms which are naturally warm and quiet, cork is the perfect choice for spaces from bars and restaurants to wine cellars and teenage bedrooms!
The use of cork in interiors was popularised by modernist architects from the 1930's onwards. Its warmth together with its naturally antimicrobial and anti-fungal properties made it the perfect choice for bathrooms and kitchens.
Our paper has been created from real Portuguese cork laminated onto a thick paper backing, making it incredibly strong and easy to hang using conventional adhesive.
The design is 130cm wide and supplied by the running metre.
