dye lot or “run number” printed on each roll

represents a particular group of rolls printed on the same run

ensures uniformity in color and pattern

record pattern numbers & dye lot numbers in case additional rolls are needed

pattern match/repeats

random match—pattern matches no matter how adjoining strips are positioned; produces much less waste; example—grasscloth

straight-across match—design elements match on adjoining strips; every strip same at ceiling line; example—stripes


Intd 54 wallcoverings

pattern match/repeats

drop-match—

half-drop—every other strip is the same at ceiling line; design elements run diagonally; takes 3 strips to repeat

multiple-drop—takes 4 or more strips to repeat

types

vinyl—variety of price points; most durable; 3 types: paper-backed, fabric-backed, vinyl-impregnated cloth

paper—more delicate; do not scrub; best used in low-maintenance rooms

embossed—have texture

rolled into them; hide

imperfections of wall

flocked—rayon & nylon

fibers-washable; brushing

against them flattens flock

types

foil—aluminum laminated to paper & simulated metallic; wash & dry carefully; show any wall imperfections

grasscloth—oriental

import; variation of color

throughout; vacuum gently

to clean

hemp, hulu, burlap—also
