Calico and its gorgeous marbled wallpaper has been warmly received by the design industry. The Calico wallpaper installed in Carrier & Company’s room in the 2014 Kips Bay Show House made it sing, but I first wrote about Calico more than a year before that installation.
It’s fascinating how Calico makes their stunning paper and you may wish to take a look back at how they do the marbling process. For Calico, it all started with Hurricane Sandy, but the art of marbleizing itself began in Japan around 825 CE.
