Product Information
The wallpaper design was inspired by a rare sample of antique paper found by chance in a New York curiosity shop. Moved by the intricate and evolving microcosmic shapes, Calico experimented with contemporizing the pattern, melding traditional marbling techniques with modern designs to create a series of unique signature styles. 

Wabi is strongly influenced by the Japanese philosophy captured by the phrase “mono no aware” (物の哀れ) which translates to “the pathos of things” or “a sensitivity to ephemera.” The collection was designed to express recognition of the all-importance of minute details, and celebrate the smallest cell’s integral connection to the universe as a whole. Finding the beauty and connections in seeming contradictions, each pattern plays with the complementary relationship between darkness and light.
