Pattern Description:

Select Patterns from York available at our Los Angeles Showroom. Purchasing Agency for Interior Designers, Architects, and Hotels. America's oldest and largest wallpaper manufacturer, York has been making wallcoverings since 1895 in its original location in Pennsylvania's Susquehanna Valley. A well-loved fixture in the York, PA community, the company continues to thrive and grow as an American manufacturer creating some of the world's favorite wallcovering brands. The handful of York workers who made wallpapers with a few printing presses in 1895 would be proud to know that today their factory creates wallpapers for people all over the U.S. and in 50 countries the world over. And they would be proud that York has stayed true to its values. Though true craftsmanship and local manufacturing have all but disappeared from the American landscape, York works hard to retain both. The vast majority of York products are designed in-house - including murals; appliques; and patterns embellished with recycled glass beads, mica, glitter, sand, Swarovski crystals, flock and embroidery. As York designers dream up ever more inventive designs, their colleagues in R&D develop machinery from scratch to bring these designs to life. Designs are readied for print by apprenticed color experts. Skilled craftspeople then print each design on one of five different types of presses, surface, gravure, rotary screen, flexo-graphic or digital. The factory hums with modern print presses running alongside surface presses dating to 1895, the year of York's founding. York is the only manufacturer in the world to own and operate every type of wallcovering printing press. The results of these collaborative, creative processes is a true representation of the craft of wallpaper-making and the skill of the artisan.
