Tiki Recycled Wallcovering from Cirqa offers a tropical texture inspired by stone, beads, and natural reeds. It has a subtle multi-watercolor print and a bamboo texture with deep reedlike embossing and metallic accents. Its heavy texture makes it well suited for renovations with uneven walls. Low in VOCs due to its water-based inks and adhesives, Tiki is made with 20% recycled content drawn from parent company LSI Wallcoverings’ Second-Look recycling program. The Type II, 20-ounce vinyl wallcovering comes in 18 nature-inspired colors from blue-green pear to beachy sand to earthy curry. It measures an average of 52" to 54" wide. cirqawallcovering.com
