History

Semb Gård (farm) in the small village of Biri dates back to 1335 and is situated 200 km north of Oslo. Arts, crafts and weaving have always been present here, so when Klare Schee started to use straw in her tapetstries, she was taking those ancestral traditions a step futher. The first straw wallcovering was made from Christmas sheaves and was used to cover the walls in the dining room at the farm. Mrs. Schee was very pleased and thought the brilliance and structure of the wallcovering  was quite extraordinary. In order to hear what other people thought  about it, she invited to a party. Among the guests there where two well-known Norwegian architects, and they were so excited about it that they dicided to use the wallcovering for a project in Oslo City Hall. Mrs. Schee personally brought the wallcovering rolls with her on the train to Oslo, where she hired an errand boy with a handcart and brought the rolls from the central railway station to the City Hall.

How to mount

 

The wallpaper is easy to install. The roll is placed on its side, and the wallpaper roll horizontally on the wall.

Staple the wallpaper directly onto the wall where this is possible. On masonry/concrete backgrounds, use wallpaper-glue for wet rooms.

If possible, remove all skirtings and facings before fitting the wallpaper. Where stapling is possible, use a staple gun with 6.8 mm stainless steel staples in the corners, along the floor, and around doors and windows. If covering large areas, establish some staples in the middle of the wall to prevent the wallpaper from bulging. 

In areas where using a staple gun is not possible, apply wallpaper paste for wet rooms using a rough trowel or a roller on the wall. Let the glue dry for 15-30 minutes (depending on the room temperature). Roll the wallpaper onto the wall.

Please contact us for more detailed instructions if needed.

Instructions - how to join to pieces of wallpaper together

Example: Over a window

Pull out some straws and threads at the ends of the pieces that are to be joined together. Apply a thin layer of wallpaper paste at the end of the piece that runs from the ceiling to the floor, so that it sticks to the wall. Fold the warp thread onto the back of the smaller piece that is to be tiled over the window. Align this piece with the big piece running from ceiling to floor. Staple some staples (6 mm) horizontally over the joint. These staples can be removed after the glue has dried (12-15 hours). The result is a completely invisible seam.
