Description
Originally patented as Linoleum Muralis (Linoleum for walls), its name soon changed to Lincrusta-Walton – Lin for Linum (flax, from which linseed oil is made) and Crusta (Relief), with the inventor’s name being added to prevent others using the same title.Manufactured since 1877, Lincrusta is still highly desired and admired across the world. We’ve long understood what it takes to create a lasting impression. And not long after launching in Britain, the appeal of Lincrusta’s wallcoverings soon spread across the globe. This has made us a great British success story where skills and craft have stood the test of time. Today, we are extremely proud that our products are still made exclusively here in the UK and that they continue to enhance the interiors of the most desirable addresses the world over. From launch, Lincrusta was an instant success, replacing painstaking artisan plasterwork and appealing to Victorian England’s tastes because of its beauty, practicality and durability. Absolutely unique and exceptionally beautiful, our wallcoverings remain unsurpassed for their deeper emboss, exquisite detail and enduring strength. Originally manufactured in Sunbury-on-Thames, production soon moved to Lancashire in 1918. From the very beginning, our wallcoverings have never needed improving. Even today, we still use many of the original rollers to emboss our distinctive designs and make our products using many of the same natural materials as we always have. Now manufactured in a purpose built factory in Morecambe, we apply the same exacting standards of craftsmanship and attention to detail as we always have.
