Wallcoverings

Ribsy

Just like its name, Ribsy wallcovering has a deep ribbed texture created by turning strips of thick wool felt on edge, alternating the heights of the strips to create a rich, dimensional surface. Each tile is composed and assembled by hand. Within each tile multiple tones of a color are arranged randomly and these subtle variations provide a unique visual warmth. The easy-to-install tiles are available in 50 colors of natural wool felt on a composite cork backing. Choose a single color for each tile, or work with us to develop your own colorway. The overall thickness of each Ribsy tile is 5/8” with a dimensional surface that will work its sound-softening magic in any interior.

Ribsy is made-to-order and is produced in a 6” H x 24” W tile. It is easily installed using a heavy-duty clay-based wallcovering adhesive, and installation errors are minimized as there is no pattern to follow. Ribsy is highly flexible and an excellent choice for both inside and outside curves. The alternating heights of the 5mm wool felt strips combined with the 3mm composite cork backing provides a 0.35 NRC rating. Mounted panels featuring our acoustic core are available, boosting the NRC rating to 0.65. Production lead-time is 4-6 weeks. Ribsy cuts easily on-site using a utility knife and straight edge. Color-matched end-of-run trim is also available. Like all our wallcovering products, Ribsy is made using zero VOC adhesives.
