Upcycling old newspapers is what creates the finished product of a textural colorful eco-friendly wallcovering with a lovely whimsical quality. Weitzner Limited uses 100-percent real newsprint cut into strips that are then handwoven on a loom. The strips are then backed with paper to create the Newsworthy wallcovering.

When one looks closely the newsprint can still be read. Imagine the walls actually speaking and sharing thoughts. Ones decor can essentially become the talk of the party.

Newsworthy has a water-resistant finish and is created using 70-percent post-consumer content with 30-percent nylon. Due to the material, the color might change when exposed to sunlight which adds to its natural appearance.

The design mimics the look of eloquent grasscloth wallcovering. Just as with the old staple of grasscloth, Newsworthy sits on the wall with a striated horizontal appearance in a paneled look. It just takes a vacuum cleaner to easily clean the eco-friendly wallcovering.
