1838 Wallcoverings

At the heart of 1838 is a celebration of design and craftsmanship. A luxury brand manufacturing all wallpapers at our factory in Lancashire. The name evokes the deep roots of wallpaper innovation, for 1838 was the year the first wallpaper machine was pioneered, just a few miles away from the factory. A family-owned business, 1838 Wallcoverings is led by brother and sister team James and Abigail Watson, whose family has over 4 generations of wallpaper printing experience. 


All wallpapers are manufactured using water based, non-toxic inks, which are environmentally safe and printed on responsibly sourced, non-woven “paste the wall” substrates. All carry the EU fire rating B-s1,d0 and so can be used in a commercial environment.
