The history of grass wallpapers: Chinese grass wallpapers In wallpaper history, Chinese silk and grass wall décor plays an essential role. Asian wall coverings made from silk or grass are amongst the oldest wallpapers we know of. Around 107 - 220 AD, wall treatments were already made from elaborately embroidered silk in China. The grass wallpapers we know and love today also originated in ancient China. Compared to expensive silk wallpapers, they were much cheaper to produce, and they also provided fantastic heat insulation. It didn't take long until they became a very popular wall treatment all over Asia, and soon they reached European shores via maritime trade routes. Until the present day, not much has changed in terms of using Asian grasses or plant fibres like raffia, bamboo, hemp or loofah in natural wallpapers, and the same is true for the traditional manufacturing process.
