Metallic silk is a luxurious wallcovering with subtle texture and luster. A combination of pearlescent and metallic pigments are hand painted onto a woven dyed silk ground creating a metallic shimmer appearance with subtle shine in which the texture of the silk weave is visible. For some of the colours the pigments are painted by hand in horizontal strokes, lending a subtle panelled effect; an integral part of the beauty of this wall covering. These wallcoverings are sold by the panel; each panel is 915 mm wide (3ft). Panels are available in standard lengths up to 4.6 m (15ft).
