In a composition reminiscent of traditional woven textiles, the Biami pattern began as a piece of artwork in ink and watercolor named for the indigenous Biami people of Papua New Guinea. Look closer and you'll spot an anthropomorphic figure repeated in the design. Biami is available as luxury grasscloth wallpaper, and Indigo Ikat is a blue colorway.

Grasscloth Installation Guide
Sisal grasscloth is a complicated material to install and it is best done by an experienced and accredited wallpaper installer. It is imperative that your installer be familiar with the nature and process of installing grasscloth. Eskayel highly recommends contacting an installer accredited with the Wallcovering Installers Association.
These instructions are for our grasscloth wallcovering only.
- We recommend measuring with a yardstick or steel tape measure. Make your measurements in feet and round off to the next half foot or foot.
- Measure the wall height from the floor to the ceiling, excluding any baseboards or moldings. Then measure the length of the wall without deducting for windows or doors (this will leave you extra wallpaper in case you may need it). Multiply the two measurements to find the surface area of the wall.
- Single rolls of this paper are 15 feet long and 33 inches wide, with one roll covering about 40 square feet. To find the number of rolls needed to cover your wall, multiply the height and the width of the wall by rounding up each length to the nearest foot. Then divide by 40.
- Example: For a wall that is 10 feet 6 inches high by 14 feet 4 inches long, round up and multiply 11 feet by 15 feet to get 165 square feet. Divide 165 by 40 and you will get 4.125. In this case you will need 5 rolls. (If the number divides out to be .5 or above, you will need to add one more roll to be safe. If you were to get 2.4, three rolls would be enough, but if you get 2.5 to 3.4, you will need four rolls.)
- If you are unsure, please contact us before making a purchase.
- Remove old wallcovering and glue if applicable.
- Wash walls to remove old paste and other foreign matter.
- Repair wall imperfections with plaster and sand smooth.
- Wash walls with a strong solution of household bleach to kill mold spores and prevent mildew from occurring.
- Prime surface to be wallpapered with a white alkyd base primer sold in your local paint and wallpaper store. Do not use glue-size.
- Refer to join marks on paper edge for pattern match (half drop/straight match).
- Use trim marks provided to trim excess from edges of paper.
- This wallcovering can be hung best with a clear premixed adhesive.
- Apply paste generously to the back, edge to edge, smoothly and evenly. Care should be taken to not allow adhesive or water on the wallcovering surface.
- For ease in hanging, after pasting we recommend the complete sheet be “booked” (folded back to back) and allowed to soak and relax while you proceed to paste the next sheet.
- After the second sheet is pasted and booked, the first sheet can be applied to the wall.
- After cutting the desired length and pasting, position the wallcovering on the wall.
- Use a smoothing brush to remove all air pockets, wrinkles and excess paste by brushing the wallcovering from the center to the edges.
- Do not use seam rollers, as this can discolor the surface.
- Repeat the procedure with the second strip, sliding it into position with its edge butted up against the edge of the proceeding strip.
- Be sure to match up the design.
- Do not overlap the wallcovering.
- Wash any glue residue from surrounding wood trim/molding immediately upon hanging each panel.
- This product is handmade and woven with natural fibers that give the finished product a certain unevenness.
- Special care should be taken to not allow water on the wallcovering.
- This is NOT a washable wallcovering. Use a vacuum only to clean the surface.
Our Grasscloth wall coverings are hand woven by skilled weavers in an entirely eco-friendly process. Sustainable, renewable fibers are sun-dried and backed with chemical-free cotton paper making the grasscloth breathable, VOC-free and completely biodegradable.
Vacuum only - do not dampen
